The New York state legislature is moving forward on a bill that would take parents out of the decision making process for their children. The new law will remove the parental permission option for all youths aged 15-18 that wish to tan and have gotten their parents permission to do so.
"Current law allows children between the ages of fourteen and eighteen to use indoor tanning facilities, with the written permission of a parent or guardian. This legislation does not adequately protect the youth from the potentially deadly health risk associated with indoor tanning."
