The Maine Senate has upheld the governor’s veto of a bill to bar children from using tanning salons.Lawmakers passed the bill which was meant to protect youths from skin cancer, but Governor LePage vetoed it, saying it’s an issue for parents to decide, not lawmakers.Current state law says anyone from 14 to 17 can use a tanning bed with a parent’s permission.Meanwhile, the House has voted to raise Maine’s minimum wage.That’s been sent to the Senate for a final vote, and the House turned down a bill calling for mandatory motorcycle helmets and the banning of cell phones by motor vehicle drivers on Tuesday.
