States Urge Senate to Reverse Amendment Allowing Debt Robocalls to Mobile Phones
Sharon Edmondson, Washington Legislative Team Member | March 03, 2016
Attorneys General from 24 states and Washington DC want the Senate to reverse an amendment to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act accepting calls purporting to collect government backed debt.
The amendment is through a provision in the congressional budget deal signed by President Obama November 2, 2015 and the AGs want it repealed. The bill, S. 2235, would affect the repeal if passed but is still in the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation.
