Nanotoxicity: Congress to study first, regulate later

Congress can sometimes react before it thinks. A good example is its passage of a 1996 law aimed at trying to protect kids from porn on the Web by outlawing any material accessible to children deemed to be “indecent” or “patently offensive.” The Supreme Court struck down the law a year later as illegal censorship. When it comes to health or environmental concerns over nanotechnology, key lawmakers are advocating research and study before Congress or federal agencies react with new regulations.
