House Votes To Ban Young From Tanning Beds

Augusta - The Maine House today voted in support of a bill that would ban the use of tanning beds for people younger than 18 years old.
 
The vote was along party lines with democrats voting in favor of it and most republicans voting against it.
 
It now heads to the Senate for consideration. We asked our Facebook friends what they think of the idea and it appears people have strong oppinions. Many think it's a great way to protect the health of young people, while others feel it's an example of government telling the people how to live their lives.
