 NEW YORK (AP) - The top Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee says the NFL players' union ``is now holding HGH testing hostage'' and that could ``force Congress to intervene.''
Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland says in a statement emailed by his office to The Associated Press on Thursday that the ``NFL Players' Association continues to disregard its promise to implement HGH testing.''
The oversight committee held a hearing in December to take a look at the science behind blood tests for human growth hormone. HGH is a banned performance-enhancing drug that is hard to detect and has been linked to health problems such as diabetes, cardiac dysfunction and arthritis.
Two full NFL seasons have passed without a final agreement on HGH since the August 2011 labor deal paved the way for testing.
