Industry can help groundbreaking nanotech bill fulfill its promise

The 21st Century Nanotechnology Research and Development Act started in the office of Sen. Joe Lieberman in 2001. Unfortunately, it was swept up in the chaos of responding to Sept. 11 and was shelved. In 2002, Sen. George Allen, Sen. Ron Wyden and House Science Committee Chairman Sherwood Boehlert picked up the mantle. Along the way it had starts, stops, revisions and every possible delay imaginable. In other words, it passed in textbook fashion.
