High School Steroid Testing Plan Moves Forward

The state's new steroid testing program for high school students has taken a big step forward with approval of the final rules of how it will be conducted.

University Interscholastic League officials in Austin approved the rules Thursday and said they hope to conduct at least two rounds of testing before the end of the school year.

The Legislature mandated the tests in May, and with the goal of testing 20,000 students annually it will be the nation's largest high school steroid testing program.

The UIL also said a contractor has been selected to conduct the tests and should be announced within the next few days.
