Gov. Peter Shumlin, D-Vermont, says he will allow a tanning bill to become law without his signature.
Both the Vt. House and Senate passed bills this that would make it illegal for people younger than 18 from using commercial tanning beds. Salons would face fines it they're caught catering to minors.
Supporters say the beds increase the risk of skin cancer. Shumlin says he agrees, but he says he cannot sign the bill because it does not include any resources for the health department to enforce the ban. Shumlin says it would be more effective to educate consumers about the risks of tanning.
