FRANKFORT, Ky. (WHAS11) – A Kentucky state Senate committee killed a bill that would have banned teens from using tanning beds.

The measure would have prohibited anyone under the age of 18 from using a tanning bed without a doctor’s prescription.

The sponsor of the bill says it’s needed to stop the increasing number of skin cancer cases.

The bill passed the house earlier this month but failed to advance to the Senate floor.
