     CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) – A new Wyoming law requires parental
consent for people 18 or younger before they’re allowed to soak in
ultraviolet rays at a tanning salon.
     Gov. Dave Freudenthal signed a bill last week making it a
misdemeanor violation to allow a child under 15 to use an
ultraviolet tanning device unless their parent consents in writing
and is present during the tanning.
     The law taking effect in July also requires that teenagers
between 15 and 18 must have written consent from their parent or
legal guardian before being allowed to use an ultraviolet tanning
device.
     Democratic State Rep. Lori Millin of Cheyenne sponsored the
legislation. She has said she was surprised at the lack of tanning
regulation.
