October 15, 2003 - Introduced by Representatives Boyle, Cullen and Berceau.
Referred to Committee on Small Business.
AB572,1,3 1An Act to amend 255.08 (9) (a) of the statutes; relating to: limiting use of
2tanning devices to persons aged at least 18 years and requiring tanning facility
3customers to present photographic identification that indicates age.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under current law, the owner of a tanning facility (a place or business that
provides customers access to a tanning device) must ensure that numerous
requirements related to customers and tanning devices are fulfilled. One of these
requirements limits use of a tanning facility to customers aged 16 years or older.
DHFS may deny issuance of a permit to an applicant or suspend or revoke any permit
issued for a violation of these requirements, and a violator may be required to forfeit
not less than $50 nor more than $250; a court may revoke a permit for a violation by
the permittee or his or her employee.
This bill limits use of tanning facilities to customers aged 18 years or older and
requires owners of tanning facilities to require customers to provide photographic
identification that indicates age.
For further information see the state and local fiscal estimate, which will be
printed as an appendix to this bill.
