CTIA Commends Senate and House Passage of Bipartisan TRACED Act .
“We applaud the leadership of Senators Thune and Markey and Representatives Pallone and Walden on the TRACED Act and the Senate and House of Representatives passing this crucial legislation.
Protecting consumers and stopping illegal and unwanted robocalls is a priority for the wireless industry. This overwhelmingly bipartisan legislative victory will remove barriers and enhance the FCC’s authority to go after bad actors – stopping illegal robocalls at the source – and acknowledges the importance of industry’s efforts to adopt and implement call authentication, which will allow providers to be more proactive in blocking illegal calls.”
