Cambridge takes cautious tack on nanotech regulation

Abstract:
Cambridge could still become the second city in the country to regulate the nanotechnology industry. But not this week.

Four months after the Cambridge City Council took the first step toward passing such a law, city officials made it clear they are taking a cautious approach to adopting new legislation. The city plans to spend months more studying the issue before even putting forward a proposal, officials said.
