After Nearly Unanimous Vote, Ban on Tanning Teens Nears Approval


Tanning restrictions seem to be looming for Nebraskan teens.

That means teenagers under 16 could soon be banned from using indoor tanning beds without a parent's permission.

Lawmakers voted 40 to one in favor of the bill Senator Jeremy Nordquist introduced the legislation. In addition to the age restriction, the bill would also require tanning facilities to post a sign warning that over-exposure to ultra-violet radiation could cause premature skin aging and skin cancer.
