Pallone Bill Aims to Crack Down on Anabolic Steroids to Protect Young Athletes
BY SEAN DUGAN
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

WASHINGTON, DC -  The U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 4771, the “Designer Anabolic Steroid Control Act,” which was introduced by Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (NJ-06), Ranking Member of the Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health, and Congressman Joe Pitts (R-PA), Chairman of the Subcommittee on Health. This bill would authorize the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to crack down on bodybuilding products that contain chemical compounds known as anabolic steroids which are often deceptively marketed as dietary supplements. Senators Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) and Orrin G. Hatch (R-UT) introduced a companion bill in the Senate, S. 2012, in February that is currently pending before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
