Headline Goes Here

HOUSTON - A new Texas law now in effect aims at keeping minors out of tanning beds.

Anyone under the age of 18 is no longer allowed to go into a tanning bed.

Doctors say the UV rays are especially harmful to young people's skin and could eventually lead to cancer.

Before the new law, anyone 16 and up could use a tanning bed if they had signed permission slip from a parent.
