INFORMATION RELATED TO THE BILL:

  • “I hear from many of my constituents who are sick and tired of receiving annoying and illegal robocalls. Many of these robocalls are often predatory as scammers try to disguise themselves as the IRS or local governments. It’s time to take our phones back,” Pallone said. “My bipartisan bill provides common-sense and meaningful solutions that will put consumers back in control of their phone and give them more help in controlling the unwanted calls they consistently receive. I would like to thank our business community and consumer advocates for their help in the fight to combat these often-predatory and irritating interruptions to our day.” (Source: Rep.
