Springfield begins the new year with a new law on the books. The city’s ban on use of tanning salons by anyone under the age of 18 takes effect on New Year’s Day.
Springfield is only the second Illinois city to impose such a ban, but we may soon have company. Alderman Sam Cahnman… who sponsored the Springfield ordinance… says legislation will be introduced this month to impose a statewide tanning ban for all minors. Current state law only prohibits the practice for those 14 and younger.
