Bill to regulate indoor tanning moves to Gov. Corbett

Legislation that prohibits children from using indoor tanning salons is awaiting the signature of Governor Tom Corbett.

House Bill 1259 cleared its final legislative hurdle Monday when it was approved by the state Senate.

The measure bans anyone 16 years old or younger from using an indoor tanning salon.

An amendment to the bill will allow 17-year-olds to use a tanning salon with parental consent.

Supporters of the measure say it will protect children from the potential dangers related to exposure.
