Bill banning minors from tanning beds stalls

A vote on a bill restricting teenagers from using indoor tanning beds has been postponed.

The measure was to be voted on by the New Jersey Assembly on Thursday.

The Senate previously endorsed it.

The bill bars minors from using tanning beds in salons, tanning parlors or spas.

It allows teens who are at least 14 to spray tan, but only with adult permission.

If the Assembly passes it, the bill would head to Gov. Chris Christie's desk for a signature.
