Congressional committee asks info from Tagliabue, other sports

March 31, 2005
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The same Congressional committee that conducted hearings into steroids in baseball has asked NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue for information about how football regulates the performance-enhancing substances.

The Government Reform Committee also said Thursday it will ask for similar data from the NBA, NHL, NCAA, U.S. Track and Field and Major League Soccer.

``As the committee has stated publicly numerous times, its focus on the performance-enhancing drug use in sports is not limited to professional baseball,'' the committee said in a letter signed by committee chairman Rep. Tom Davis and ranking Democrat Rep. Henry Waxman

Think Congress will just tax steroids in the future cause it doesn't seem like anyone really wants them gone?
