Washington, February 12, 2013 | Jon Corley (202-225-3706)

U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry (R-Clarendon) made the following statement about President Obama's Executive Order on cybersecurity:

“No executive order can possibly do what needs to be done to protect our networks and our nation.  It also cannot take the place of legislation.  Strengthening cybersecurity must be collaborative and bipartisan. The only way we are going to be able to move forward is with the House, Senate, and Administration working together and taking steps to make progress on cybersecurity.”
