Abstract: We collected a sample of 661 confirmed and 361 possible BL Lac candidates from the recent catalog of BL Lac objects (Véron-Cetty & Véron 2006). We searched these sources in the recent data release DR5 of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) and found spectra were available for 169 and 109 confirmed and possible BL Lac candidates, respectively. We found that 32 candidates from the confirmed and 19 candidates from the possible BL Lac lists have non-featureless spectra and are thus possibly not BL Lac candidates. We report here the preliminary results from our analysis of a sample of 278 BL Lac objects.
