SALT LAKE CITY -- Lawmakers are discussing a bill that would require nail salons to have a vacuum device at each station while working on acrylic nails.

Sen. Todd Weiler, R-Woods Cross, is sponsoring the bill. He said the proposal is meant to protect small businesses. Supporters of the bill claim the dust and odor that comes from the drill filing and gluing of nails are harmful.

Members of the House Business and Labor Committee approved the bill Wednesday. It will now move on to the full Senate.
