Bill restricting teens from tanning parlors killed
The vote to indefinitely postpone House Bill 1351 was 175-154.
Rep. Steven Beaudoin, R-Rochester, argued against the bill, saying, “If we’re going to regulate people’s behavior, there is a lot of risky behavior people get involved in.
He said that people under 18 can already get tattoos, piercings and plastic surgery.
Rep. Steve Vaillancourt, R-Manchester, added that if the bill passes, women under 18 “can get an abortion but they can’t get a tan. I think it’s time to get real.
Rep. Jeanine Notter, R-Merrimack, asked, “Should the state mandate vitamin D supplements to make up for the lack of sunshine?”
