We wanted to provide this reminder to anyone interested in the outcome of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) meeting, which will cover the proposed Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) Declaratory Ruling and Order. The open Commission meeting takes place tomorrow, Thursday June 18, from 10:30-12:30 EDT. The event may be watched live online at the link below.
These are the details of the meeting; TCPA is the third topic on the agenda.
  • Direct Access to Numbers for Interconnected VoIP Providers:
    The Commission will consider a Report and Order that will facilitate innovative technologies and services by establishing a process to authorize interconnected VoIP providers to obtain telephone numbers directly from the Numbering Administrators, rather than through intermediaries.
  • Lifeline Reform and Modernization:
    In order to comprehensively restructure and modernize the Lifeline program to efficiently and effectively connect low-income Americans to broadband, strengthen program oversight and administration, and take additional measures to eliminate waste, fraud, and abuse, the Commission will consider a Second Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, Order on Reconsideration, Second Report and Order, and Memorandum Opinion and Order.
  • Protecting Consumers Against Unwanted Robocalls:
    The Commission will consider a Declaratory Ruling and Order reaffirming the Telephone Consumer Protection Act’s protections against unwanted robocalls, encouraging pro-consumer uses of robocall technology, and responding to a number of requests for clarity from businesses and other callers.
  • Expanding the Economic and Innovation Opportunities of Spectrum Through Incentive Auctions:
    The Commission will consider a Second Order on Reconsideration that resolves petitions for reconsideration of the Commission’s Order adopting 3 rules to implement the Broadcast Television Spectrum Incentive Auction, providing parties with additional certainty ahead of the auction.
