Iowa panel OKs bill banning minors from tanning salons

Posted: Updated:
DES MOINES (AP) - A House legislative panel has approved a bill that would prohibit indoor tanning for minors at commercial salons in Iowa.

Members of a human resources subcommittee agreed Tuesday to advance the bill. It now heads to a full committee for consideration.

The bill would ban people under age 18 from using a tanning device at a commercial salon, with or without parental consent. Current law has no restrictions.

A separate legislative panel in the Senate approved a similar bill last month.

There is no opposition listed for the bill. Eric Goranson, a lobbyist for the American Suntanning Association, says the group supports the legislation.
