LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ New restrictions on tanning beds, novelty lighters and manure spills in Omaha are about to become law.


They're among 122 new laws set to go into effect in Nebraska on Friday, when the three-month grace period from the end of the legislative session expires.


Indoor tanning beds will be off-limits to children younger than 16 unless they're accompanied by a parent or guardian, and they'll still need written consent. 


Truckers who spill livestock manure in Omaha will face a minimum $250 fine, up from the current $100. And Nebraska will only allow the sale of novelty lighters that have child-proof safety features.


Senators also approved major legislation to lower taxes and reduce prison crowding, but most of those measures won't come into play until next year.
