Lawmakers for at least 22 states have considered restrictions on teenagers' use of indoor tanning salons this year. North Carolina, Ohio and Rhode Island are considering requiring a doctor's note for those younger than 18, but similar bills did not pass in Iowa and Washington. Lawmakers in Connecticut, Nevada, South Dakota and West Virginia rejected parental permission bills similar to one being considered in Missouri. Legislators in California, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania are considering outright bans on teen tanning, but similar bills failed in Illinois, Maryland, Minnesota and New Mexico.
