Something We Can All Get Behind
At last a chance to thank our GOP senators (as well as our Democratic ones). The Senate just passed S. 151 the TRACED (Telephone Robocall Abuse Criminal Enforcement and Deterrence) Act, which will crack down on robocalls by giving the relevant federal agencies more resources to deal with this issue as well as introducing stricter penalties for spam callers. The bill also mandates that voice service providers introduce more sophisticated screening and authentication technologies to intercept and block such calls.
Contact your Senators and thank them for voting for S. 151 the TRACED Act. Unless your senator is Rand Paul, who was the ONLY nay vote. If he’s yours, give him a piece of your mind. Inhofe (R-OK) and Rounds (R-SD) didn’t vote. Everyone else was a yea vote.
