JACKSON (AP) — If you’re too young to vote, you soon might be too young to use a tanning bed in Mississippi without a note from mom or dad.

A bill that passed the state Senate on Tuesday would require anyone 17 or younger to get written permission from a parent or guardian before using an indoor tanning facility.

It also would require a parent or guardian to remain at the gym, salon or other facility when someone 13 or younger uses a tanning bed.
