THE HILL: GOP senators to White House: Cyber order would be ‘a mistake.’ “The three Republicans contend that only Congress has the power to enact cybersecurity policy that would incentivize companies to follow best practices for securing their networks, including offering them liability protection from legal action if they are hit by a cyberattack. They also argue that only legislation would offer privacy protections for Americans’ sensitive information and provide a long-term solution that would endure ‘from one administration to the next’ for protecting the nation from cyberattacks.”

Apparently they missed the memo that we now use Executive Orders in place of legislation for anything controversial.
