(Washington, D.C.) – Congressman Larry Bucshon, M.D. (IN-08) released the following statement after voting in support of the TRACED Act (S. 151), legislation to deter criminal robocalls:
“I am pleased to stand with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to provide relief to Hoosiers who are tired of annoying robocalls. These seemingly endless scam calls are often criminals that are knowingly breaking the law and trying to defraud Americans. By requiring phone companies to block robocalls, at no additional cost to consumers, the Federal Communications Commission will have more time to track down scammers and penalize them accordingly.”
NOTE: Congressman Bucshon was a cosponsor of the Stopping Bad Robocalls Act (H.R. 3375), the House version of this Senate revised legislation.
