View Amendment Current Amendment: 1 to Bill 3807 Rep. FRY proposes the following Amendment No. 1 to H. 3807 (COUNCIL\VR\3807C001.CC.VR19):

Reference is to Printer's Date 3/7/19-H.

Amend the bill, as and if amended, SECTION 2, by striking Sections 44-129-20 through 44-129-30 and inserting:

/            Section 44-129-20.            An individual must be at least eighteen years of age to use tanning equipment in a tanning facility in this State, unless the underage individual's parent or legal guardian signs a written consent form meeting the requirements of this section. The consent form must be signed by the parent or legal guardian at the tanning facility before the underage individual may use the equipment or facility, and the consent is only effective to give permission for the underage individual to use the equipment or facility on the date on which the parent or legal guardian signs the consent.

     Section 44-129-30.      Every operator of tanning equipment in this State and every tanning facility registrant subject to Chapter 7, Title 13, and applicable regulations promulgated pursuant to that chapter, shall comply with or ensure compliance with the following:
     (1)      Except when a parent or a legal guardian provides written consent in accordance with the provisions of Section 44-129-20, the operator shall prohibit an individual under eighteen years of age from using any tanning equipment, or otherwise being a consumer of the tanning facility, and shall demand proper proof of age to verify that an individual is at least eighteen years of age. Failure to demand identification to verify an individual's age is not a defense to any enforcement action taken pursuant to Section 44-129-40. Proof that is demanded, is shown, and reasonably is relied upon for the individual's proof of age is a defense to violation of this chapter.
     (2)      The operator or registrant shall post a permanent, conspicuous, legible sign in the entrance to the tanning facility unobstructed by any barrier, equipment, or other item so that any prospective consumer entering the facility can easily view the sign which states: 'An individual must be at least eighteen years of age to use the tanning equipment without parental consent. It is a violation of South Carolina law for an individual under the age of eighteen years to use tanning equipment in this State without parental consent.'            /
