Ethics center a small obstacle as senate nears nano bill passage

The U.S. Senate is close to giving its long-awaited approval to a bill that would give nanotechnology a permanent home in the federal government, but passage is being held up in backroom debates over a proposed center to study societal and ethical issues. Sources say disagreements, including whether such a center would hinder the emerging industry's progress, should be resolved soon.
