Maryland Legislation Introduced to Prohibit Indoor Tanning for Minors
Date:3/10/2010

March 10 Senate Hearing to Consider Greater Protection of Youth

Cross-filed Bills: Senate Bill 718 & House Bill 1039

ANNAPOLIS, Md., March 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- New Maryland legislation to protect youth from melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, is based on significant scientific evidence that indoor tanning before the age of 30 is undeniably linked to increased risk of developing the disease. Senator James N. Robey and Delegate William A. Bronrott represent a broad-based coalition of 20 legislators in the Senate and House co-sponsoring cross-filed bills SB 718 and HB 1039 to prohibit minors' use of tanning devices in tanning facilities and prevent any marketing offers of these services to minors. Health organizations including the American Academy of Dermatology Association, American Cancer Society, Center for a Healthy Maryland and Joanna M. Nicolay Melanoma Foundation (JMNMF), rally in firm support of this necessary legislation.
