Bill bans children under 18 from tanning beds in Oklahoma

Ponca City Now - April 5, 2016 10:00 am

Children under age 18 would be prohibited from using tanning beds under a bill approved by a Senate committee that imposes new regulations on tanning businesses in Oklahoma.

The Senate Health and Human Services Committee voted 8-1 on Monday for the bill that now heads to the full Senate for consideration.

The bill is supported by the American Cancer Society Action Network.

Besides prohibiting the use of indoor tanning devices by those younger than 18, the bill requires tanning bed operators to properly sanitize tanning devices, provide customers with protective eyewear at no cost, and follow other regulations.
