Be prepared for more pale teens, particularly during the winter months in Washington. Most minors would be banned from sessions in tanning booths under a bill receiving final approval in the Legislature this morning. With a 42-6 vote, the Senate agreed with changes to SB 6065, and sent the ban to Gov. Jay Inslee. The House recently made a slight change in the bill, allowing physicians to write a prescription for minors to have sessions in the ultraviolet light chambers. Other than that, the bill says a person must be 18 or over, and produce identification, to use a booth at a tanning salon in Washington/Jim Camden, Eye on Olympia. More here.
Question: Idaho's John Rusche, D-Lewiston, has proposed a similar bill in the Idaho Legislature. Should Idaho follow suit in banning minors from tanning booths?
