Spain passes anti-doping law

IHT.com | Spain's senate passes anti-doping law

Sapin's senate passed an anti-doping law on Thursday. The act, passed 300-5, became the “law for the protection of health and the fight against doping in sport.”

The biggest single outcome of the new law is likely to be the creation of a governmental anti-doping agency.

"We have to make sure sport is clean," education and science minister Mercedes Cabrera said. "We have to remove the threats that affect the rules of competition and the principles of a clean game."

We're from the government; we're here to help.

Knowning that there is a government bureaucracy at work on this problem now completely puts me at ease.
