Louisiana House panel backs ban on tanning beds for minors

BATON ROUGE — Anyone under age 18 would be banned from using tanning beds in Louisiana if state lawmakers agree to a proposal overwhelmingly backed today by the House health care committee.

Rep. Richard Burford, R-Stonewall, cast the only vote against Rep. Helena Morenos measure. He said he didnt want his vote to be interpreted as being in favor of letting children suffer, but he said he disagrees with the government telling parents how to raise their children.

Moreno, D-New Orleans, said her House Bill 746 would lower risks of skin cancer associated with exposure to ultraviolet radiation from sunlight or tanning lamps and beds. She said she introduced the measure after hearing from dermatologists and reviewing data about the dangers associated with indoor tanning equipment.
