(DES MOINES) Lawmakers in New Jersey just passed a law making it illegal for minors to use commercial tanning beds, but similar bills appear to be dead for the year in the Iowa Statehouse.
However, an Ankeny Republican says doctors told him Wednesday morning he had a “suspicious, possibly pre-cancerous mole” on his face. So, now Representative Kevin Koester says he has a renewed interest in possibly keeping kids out of tanning beds.
“A colossal increase in risk of skin cancer, so it’s important to pay attention to how that business ought to operate, how it would be safe, what patients and customers ought to know,” said Koester.
Representative Kevin Koester says it appears his youth as a lifeguard at Gray’s Lake is catching up to him.
