Tan Mom Law: Passed in New Jersey!

by at .

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has signed a new law barring people under 17 from going to Garden State tanning salons without parental approval.

All thanks to infamous Tanning Mom Patricia Krentcil.

Tan Mom

The "Tan Mom Law" goes into effect immediately.

For her part, Krentcil says she supports the measure - she denied her five-year-old ever went in a tanning booth, despite her arrest for that incident.

Patricia tells TMZ, "I don't think children ever should tan."

"I believe that it should be something that's spoken about and now it's been rectified after I went through a year of mockery for something I never would do and did not do."

"It makes me sick when I go by a tanning place [now]."

Tanning Mom, of Nutley, N.J., got that nickname after she was arrested on child endangerment charges for allegedly putting her 5-year-old in a tanning booth.

She did earn some measure of vindication, as T-Mom denied the charges from the beginning and a grand jury opted not to indict her. She's off the hook.

She does, however, resemble a raisin. No escaping that.
