Dear [Decision Maker],

I'm very disappointed in your decision to not bring up the tanning bed legislation for a vote in your committee. Protecting the children of Mississippi from the dangers of indoor tanning devices is a serious health issue worth discussion and a vote.

Mississippi health organizations like the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network and advocates like me have shared these facts with our lawmakers for the last three years. I know that you are faced with many difficult decisions to make, but this should not be one of them. I would really appreciate hearing your reason(s) for not protecting our children and prohibiting the use of indoor tanning devices for those under the age of 18.
