Steroids Testing Program on the Chopping Block

Staff Report

If your child plays sports, they may not be forced to take random steroids tests anymore.

The program may fall victim to state budget cuts.

Under the House plan, lawmakers chopped funding for it.

Supporters say the move would kill an important deterrent against drug use.

However, critics argue very few students using steroids have been caught and lawmakers should spend the money on teachers and healthcare.
