State senators want indoor tanning to be safer in Pennsylvania.
The chamber voted 48-1 on Monday to require the facilities to get a license from the state that includes registration of the tanning device.
Salon operators would have to post a sign that advises customers of risks. Among them, it must warn of ultraviolet radiation, the potential skin damage, and that people who don't tan in the sun are unlikely to tan under an ultraviolet lamp or sunlamp.
Also, salon operators would have to use federally certified tanning devices, follow a range of safety guidelines and require minors to be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian in order to use a tanning device for the first time.
The bill goes to the House for consideration.
