Looming over the cybersecurity negotiations this year has been the possibility that the White House will issue an executive order implementing some key provisions from Liebermanís bill.

McCaul said, however, that an executive order would be understandable.
ďI donít blame the White House for acting, because Congress failed,Ē he said.
