The tanning proposal is based on seriously flawed information as detailed in my attached comments. Please do not pass the proposal as currently written. Thank you. Jan Meshon

Comment:
As a Melanoma survivor, I urge you to please place more emphasis on the harmful effects of indoor tanning. I used to go tanning while I was a teenager and was diagnosed with Melanoma at 29 yrs of age. I believe that indoor tanning should be viewed just as dangerous as cigarette smoking and that it should have an age requirement of 21 years old.
