H.R. 2565, The Office of National Drug Control Reauthorization Act
- This item is from the 109th Congress (2005-2006) and is no longer current. Comments, voting, and wiki editing have been disabled, and the cost/savings estimate has been frozen.
H.R. 2565 would reauthorize operations of the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) and programs administered by that office through 2010. Major programs administered by ONDCP include the High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas program, the National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign, and the Counterdrug Technology Assessment Center. In addition, the legislation would direct ONDCP to oversee drug policies of professional sports leagues. Under the bill, these leagues would be required to ban the use of certain drugs and set mandatory minimum drug-testing requirements for professional athletes. The bill would increase penalties for leagues and athletes that do not comply with these requirements.
