The Pallone-Thune TRACED Act is now the law of the land. President Trump signed the bill yesterday. Enactment triggers a number of obligations under the statute regarding rulemakings and reports by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
The President’s Press Secretary issued the following statement in conjunction with the signing:
This historic legislation will provide American consumers with even greater protection against annoying unsolicited robocalls. American families deserve control over their communications, and this legislation will update our laws and regulations to stiffen penalties, increase transparency, and enhance government collaboration to stop unwanted solicitation. President Donald J. Trump is proud to have worked with Congress to get this bipartisan legislation to his desk, and even prouder to sign it into law today.
FCC Chairman Pai also issued a supportive statement, lauding, in particular, the extension of the statute of limitations and removal of citation requirements.
