High school athletes in Texas, could face mandatory random steroid testing starting this fall under legislation approved Monday and sent to the governor.
If Gov. Rick Perry allows the bill to become law - he has not publicly expressed any opposition - the state could begin testing tens of thousands of students at the start of the coming football season.
Steroid testing has been a major component of Republican Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst's campaign to protect children. Athletes who test positive, or refuse to be tested, could be suspended from play. Athletes in all sports, from football to wrestling to tennis, could be tested.
"It will help secure healthy and safe lives for our young people," said Republican Rep. Dan Flynn, the House sponsor of the measure. "Coaches, parents and fans are going to appreciate it."
