It’s official. Tan-Free Teens was signed into law by Governor Dayton as part of a large package of health-related laws.
And it is all thanks to you.
- No one under the age of 18 may use a commercial indoor tanning facility in Minnesota.
- All tanning facilities must prominently display a sign to that effect.
- Tanning facility owners/operators who violate the law are subject to a misdemeanor penalty as determined by a judge.
Hundreds of advocates - including survivors, physicians, nurses, parents, and teachers – visited lawmakers, spoke to the media, wrote letters, sent e-mails, made phone calls and otherwise told their stories. We could NOT have done this without you.
Next step – celebration! Watch for an invitation to a celebration event in June.
In the meantime, enjoy this victory in the fight against cancer.
