Going “All In” to Stop Scam Robocalls: Senate Approves TRACED Act
Sooner than expected, but not soon enough for most consumers, the United States Senate has approved amendments to the TRACED Act to take on robocalls. This fast-tracked legislation, arguably one of the biggest moves yet, will increase fines up to $10,000 for each call and increase the statute of limitations for prosecution up to three years for violators. For service providers, it will require call authentication to be developed, rules to be established for call blocking, and a process to authenticate and dispute for those whose calls are blocked adversely. Also, an interagency working group is to be formed by the Department of Justice and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to report on the progress. Next, the bill will go to the House.
