Tennessee AG Urges U.S. Senate to Approve Anti-Robocall Legislation

Tennessee Attorney General Herbert H. Slatery III urged the U.S. Senate to enact the Telephone Robocall Abuse Criminal Enforcement and Deterrence (TRACED) Act, legislation to curb illegal robocalls and spoofing. A coalition of 54 attorneys general sent a letter to the U. S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation supporting the TRACED Act, which is sponsored by Sens. John Thune and Ed Markey. The legislation will require voice service providers to participate in a call authentication framework to help block unwanted calls and creates an interagency working group to take additional actions to reduce robocalls and hold telemarketers and robocallers accountable.
