The Obama administration thought it had support from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for its cyber security plan to protect U.S. computer systems. But it turns out that’s not the case, which could be a fatal blow to the plan, The Wall Street Journal reports. In an internal draft document, the chamber derides the proposal as "regulatory overreach."

Administration officials "thought they had gotten a fair degree of support from the chamber and others," said Lewis, who advised the administration on the issue.

Indeed, the chamber expressed initial support for the plan after it was released last week. But upon further review, its officials discovered elements they didn’t like.
