Rep. Culberson addresses local concerns

Abstract:
U.S. Representative for Rice's district John Culberson (R) hosted a town hall meeting Feb. 22 at McNair Hall. Among the items discussed were the proposed addition of 21,000 troops in Iraq, the planned expansion of the METRORail, the threat of Iran's nuclear capacity, the security of the US-Mexico border and the role of nanotechnology in Houston. Approximately 150 people attended the talk, including one undergraduate student.

"The 21st century will belong to nanotechnology and will belong to Houston and the Texas Medical Center," Culberson said. "Nanotechnology will change our lives in the next century as oil and electricity did in the last century."
