A Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation subcommittee held a hearing to examine a Federal Communications Commission report on robocalls and review congressional steps to provide relief from the illegal calls. The subcommittee heard testimony from Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson (R), USTelecom vice president Kevin Rupy, and National Consumer Law Center senior counsel Margot Saunders about how the industry and regulators are trying to crack down on robocalls. The witnesses offered their support for the Telephone Robocall Abuse Criminal Enforcement and Deterrence (TRACED) Act, which was introduced by Senators John Thune (R-SD) and Ed Markey (D-MA) and would give more authority to regulators to levy civil and criminal penalties on violators and require service providers to adopt call authentication technologies and other provisions. close
