Texas HB 3563 Calls for Randomly Testing Students for Steroid Use

Phil King of Weatherford is author.The bill would apply to students competing under UIL rules.

Houston Chronicle:

Rep. Phil King, R-Weatherford, said if his bill is passed, a student-athlete who tests positive would be required to take counseling with parents. A second positive test would make the student ineligible for competition.

A Texas A&M University survey two years ago found that nearly 42,000 Texas students in grades 7 through 12 — about 2.3 percent — had taken steroids. Nine students at Colleyville Heritage High School admitted taking steroids last year, according to a newspaper report

UPDATE: Legislator backs away from steroid testing - the schools would have had to pick up the cost of the tests, which could cost up to $175 each. King says he had an "overreaction, a knee-jerk reaction" to the steroid problem but has come up with a new plan focusing on education. School districts not only balked at the cost but at the idea of losing control over what is considered a local, not state issue.
