The state Senate passed bipartisan tanning legislation sponsored by Robert Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean).
Senator Singer’s S-1172 prohibits minors younger than 14 from spray tanning and those younger than 17 from using tanning beds in tanning facilities. Seventeen-year-olds can use tanning beds only if a parent or guardian is present at the tanning facility for initial consultation.
“Tanning can be habit-forming, and children and young teens are the most-vulnerable to the life-threatening risks of skin cancer,” Singer emphasized. “We hear of serious, sometimes fatal cases of skin cancer in young people in their twenties and thirties who were frequent users of artificial tanning beds as teens.”
