Indoor Tanning Association Opposes Suffolk Bill Banning Teens From Sun-Beds
Date:8/18/2009

Proposed law would regulate teens' right to tan more rigidly than their right to marry, drive a car, and join the military

WASHINGTON, Aug. 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today the Indoor Tanning Association (ITA) denounced Introduced Resolution 1714, which would ban Suffolk teens under the age of 18 from using a sun-bed.

Apparently, that's a job for the Suffolk legislature.

Furthermore, Suffolk's proposed ban on the use of tanning beds by 18 year olds, regardless of parental consent, expressly conflicts with New York state law, which specifically permits 14 to 18 year olds to use tanning beds as long as they have written consent from a parent. Under the state's "Preemption Doctrine," this law, if enacted by the Suffolk legislature, would be totally invalid.

With this bill the legislature is overstepping its bounds as it deeply intrudes in people's personal decisions. The ultraviolet light from a tanning bed i
