Big plans for tiniest technologies

Abstract:
Sen. Ron Wyden has big plans for resurrecting the Oregon economy -- big plans based on the tiniest of technologies. Along with Sen. George Allen of Virginia, Wyden co-sponsored the recently passed 21st Century Nanotechnology Research and Development Act, which will provide $3.7 billion for research and education in nanotechnology in 2005. He wants to see much of this funding come to his home state, and has already appropriated $1.2 million in federal funding for the development of a collaborative nanotechnology research center in Oregon.
