Texas May End Steroid Testing
State lawmakers, facing a projected $15 billion budget deficit, are considering ending Texas statewide steroid-testing program. Under the 2-year-old program, all public school student-athletes are subject to random urine testing. Out of 50,000 tests, fewer than two dozen students have had positive results. The state House of Representatives new budget would cut the program, while the Senates current version still funds it.
