Bill that would ban tanning bed use by those under 18 fails

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Teenagers will still be able to use tanning beds in Kentucky.

A Senate committee killed the bill that would have banned anyone under 18 from using them.

The bill passed the House earlier this month, but failed to get the six votes needed to go to the Senate floor.

The sponsor of the bill says he was trying to stop the increasing number of skin cancer cases.

A lawmaker who wouldn't approve it says it's an example of the government telling people how to live their lives.
