DENVER (AP) -- This year's attempt to block Colorado youths from tanning beds is up for its first vote in the Legislature.

The bill would ban people younger than 18 from using tanning beds in Colorado without a doctor's prescription. It's up for its first hearing on Thursday in a House committee.

The measure goes further than previous attempts, which sought to require parental permission for youth tanning bed use.

Supporters say the tougher legislation should secure the endorsement of health advocates who have opposed limiting efforts over the last two years, saying they couldn't support anything short of an outright ban.

It's unclear how much opposition there is going to be to the new proposal.
