Springfield Aldermen Pass Ban of Commercial Tanning Bed Use for Minors


Tanning salons in Springfield will be off limits to teenagers starting January 1st.

 

The Springfield City Council reversed course Tuesday night and approved a ban on indoor tanning by minors, regardless of whether they have a parent’s permission.

 

The measure had been stalled in committee, but Alderman Sam Cahnman picked up the extra votes to pass it after the Sangamon County Medical Society endorsed the measure last week.

 

Alderman Cory Jobe, who voted in favor of the ban, says he now wants the city to push state lawmakers to adopt a statewide ban on teen tanning.
