Medical Society Endorses Alderman Cahnman's Tan Ban Plan

The issue of teens and tanning beds is back on the front burner in Springfield.


The Sangamon County Medical Society has now endorsed a controversial city ordinance that would prohibit anyone under 18 from using a tanning parlor in the city, regardless of whether they have a parent’s permission.


Dermatologist Judy Knox says indoor tanning poses an extreme cancer risk that justifies the ban.


Alderman Sam Cahnman says he may try to bring the stalled ordinance out of committee as early as next week.
