OR Issuing Tanning Bed Restrictions



Medford, Oregon ( KDRV) Oregon is ranked fourth in the nation when it comes to skin cancer deaths and medical researchers believe that's because so many people use tanning beds.

Now state lawmakers are proposing a bill that could change tanning bed requirements. Anyone younger than 18 would need a doctor's note to tan.

House Bill 2896 would make it the doctor's decision requiring a note of recommendation to use the tanning booth. Now many are switching to spray tanning.

Oregon is not the first state to talk tanning bed restrictions. Vermont and California have similar tanning bed bans and 33 other states have issued some sort of restriction on indoor tanning.
