This is a good one to localize:

• Clearly this is not a good thing for tanning salons, so how are they reacting? It's been a tough year for tanning salons, a tax that was part of the health care bill meant bad news for them as well. How are they coping with all of this?

• What are the health risks with tanning and does it impact a teenager's body in a way that's different than an adult's body? Can a health professional explain?

• What do teens and the parents of teens have to say about these proposed laws? Are they for it, against it? Great man-on-the-street material, as well as great poll and Facebook questions.
