Tanning salon prohibitions before Senate committee

TRENTON – The Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee will hold a hearing today on a bill that would prohibit those under age 18 from using tanning facilities.

The bill, S2119, would also require facilities to post signs that state nobody under age 18 could use the facility.

The primary sponsors are Loretta Weinberg, (D-37), Teaneck, and Robert Singer, (R-30), Jackson. The Assembly version is a2867.
