Bill banning minors from tanning beds passes OK House

OK (KSWO)- It could be the end of tanning for minors thanks to a bill that passed the House yesterday.

Senate Bill 765 passed with 57 votes for and 35 against. The measure says it is unlawful for any person under 18-years of age to use any tanning device of any tanning facility in this state.

Lawmakers are aiming to cut down on skin cancer, premature aging of the skin and other health risks associated with tanning. The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network supported the measure and worked with lawmakers to advocate for the passage.
