New Jersey Moves Even Closer To Banning Tanning Minors

We previously mentioned that New Jersey was taking steps to prevent minors from using tanning booths.

The Assembly's Women and Children Committee passed the measure by a 5-0 vote, banning anyone under the age of 18 from using tanning beds.

Then the motion went to the full Assembly and was approved 58-7!

So now it heads to the Senate for consideration.

If it passes, parents will have to give written consent for kids 14-17 to get even a spray tan!

That may be a bit extreme but at least all of this is a step in the right direction.

One more round until people like Tanning Mom can no longer put their children in harm's way.
