Springfield's teen tanning ban is going statewide.
Governor Pat Quinn has signed legislation that prohibits anyone under the age of 18 from using commercial indoor tanning beds.
The new law was co-sponsored by Republican Representative Raymond Poe and is modeled after the ban approved last year by Springfield aldermen.
Supporters say there's a direct link between indoor tanning and a sharp increase in skin cancer cases.
The new ban takes effect January 1.
