We are pleased to present the latest edition of our Monthly TCPA Digest, providing insights and news related to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).
In this issue, we cover the Senate Commerce Committee’s markup of the Telephone Robocall Abuse Criminal Enforcement and Deterrence (TRACED) Act and two other congressional hearings about robocalls. We also review comments on the FCC’s Notice of Proposed Rulemaking regarding possible modifications to the Truth in Caller ID rules, as well as other TCPA-related proceedings. In addition, we discuss Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross’s letter to the FCC opposing its reconsideration of the 2016 Broadnet Declaratory Ruling, which determined that federal agencies and contractors working on their behalf are not “persons” under the TCPA. Secretary Ross believes the reconsideration creates uncertainty around the Census Bureau’s ability to use contractors to call millions of Americans, often on their mobile phones.
