Critics...have pointed out the agency could be used by totalitarian governments to shut down the Web around the globe, either in whole or in part. ...Congress has passed legislation to prohibit the federal government from using tax dollars to allow the transition...feds are constitutionally prohibited from transferring federal property without approval from Congress.
