A bill that would prohibit minors from using commercial tanning beds that was stopped two years ago appears to be on its way to passing out of a Kansas House committee.
The bill appears to have the votes to pass out of the House Health and Human Services Committee despite testimony against it from Joseph Levy.
Levy is a lobbyist for the tanning industry. He says the American Cancer Society and other supporters of the bill are overstating the dangers of indoor tanning.
“The case that’s been made goes well beyond the facts," Levy says.
