Committee backs ban on tanning beds for minors


BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- A bid to ban anyone under the age of 18 in Louisiana from using a tanning bed is nearing final legislative passage after getting the support of the Senate Health and Welfare Committee.

The House-approved bill (House Bill 746) was backed Tuesday without objection.

It heads next to the full Senate for debate. Rep. Helena Moreno, D-New Orleans, described her bill as a cancer-prevention measure.
