Steroid Crackdown

By  | 

The bill, if signed into law, would put all the control on local school districts to implement whatever policies they see fit.

The may or may not include drug testing. Both the Michigan High School Athletic Association and at least one local athletic director thinks local control is the way to go.

The bill will also call on the Deparment of Community Health to provide list of banned substances, including steroids, to the school districts. They can then take that information to combat any and all substance problems as they see fit.

Democrats wanted funding included for random drug testing during state tournaments. That move was defeated.

The bill will now go to the governor's office for signature into law, or veto.
