Biden-Hatch Bill Passes US Senate

Yesterday, the United States Senate approved legislation that allows the US Drug Enforcement Agency to add androstendione (andro), Tetrahydrogestrinone (THG) and other steroid precursors to the list of anabolic steroids that are classified as Schedule III Controlled Substances.

The Bill, S.2195, was originally sponsored by Sen. Joe Biden (D-Del.) and Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) and supported by dietary supplements industry trade associations.

This legislation, after a pass through conference, will go to the President to be signed into law.
