The state of Indiana is closer to having a ban on minors using tanning beds.

The House Public Health Committee voted to move forward with the bill this morning.

It proposes making it illegal for anyone under the age of 16 to use a tanning bed at a tanning salon.

16 and 17 year-olds would be able to tan with permission from a parent in writing.
