Senate Kills Tanning Consent Bill
February 10, 2009, 7:16 AM
The South Dakota Senate on Monday killed a bill that would have required minors to have written permission from a parent or legal guardian before using a tanning bed.
The vote was 13-22 after an attempt to amend the bill failed.
Opponents of the legislation said many tanning salons already ask for parental permission and that there are bigger issues to tackle this session.
A dermatologist who supported the bill said he had seen several young people who have developed skin cancer - and that they told him they were frequent visitors to tanning salons.
