SACRAMENTO BEE: Sen. Lieu's proposed ban on children using tanning beds 'noteworthy'
October 05, 2011
Your handy checklist of pending bills
Gov. Jerry Brown, closing in on his Sunday night signing deadline for bills passed in this year's legislative session, still has a number of noteworthy measures on his desk.

What it would do: Prohibit children under 18 years old from using tanning beds.
Analysis: California would be the first state in the nation to ban minors from fake baking. Brown will weigh health arguments from doctors, nurses and the American Cancer Society against the tanning industry, which argues the current law - requiring parental consent for tanners between ages 14 and 18 - is working.
