CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - The West Virginia Senate passed a bill that would prohibit anyone under age 18 from going to tanning salons.
 
The bill passed Monday also requires anyone who goes to a tanning salon to sign a consent form warning them that using tanning beds can cause cancer and other health risks.
 
Penalties for violations range from $500 for a first offense to as much as $5,000, a year in jail and loss of business license for a third offense.
 
Tanning salons would be required to register with local boards of health and would be subject to annual safety and sanitation inspections.
 
The bill passed 26-8, with five Republicans and three Democrats voting against it.
