Tanning bed limits under review again in Colo.

DENVER (AP) - Tanning bed limits for teenagers are again up for discussion in the Colorado Legislature.

Colorado is one of the few states that don't restrict youth tanning bed use. A bill up for its first hearing in a House committee Thursday would change that. Minors under 15 would not be allowed to use indoor tanning beds without a doctor's note. Teens 15 to 18 would need parental permission every six months.

A similar bill was withdrawn last year. The indoor tanning industry calls the limits unnecessary, while health advocates say indoor tanning should be completely off-limits for people under 18.

Lawmakers in 25 other states are reviewing tighter restrictions on young people tanning, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.
