DENVER (AP) -- Lawmakers will consider a Democrat's proposal to restrict teenagers' use of tanning beds by requiring youths to have permission from parents and doctors.
A House committee will listen to testimony on the bill Tuesday and take the first vote on the measure.
The bill sponsored by Westminster Rep. Cherylin Peniston would prohibit the use of tanning beds for teens under 15, unless they have a doctor's prescription. Older teens who are under 18 would need a parental permission slip or a doctor's prescription to use tanning beds.
Colorado is one of the few states that doesn't limit youth tanning bed use.
