FCC issues proposal addressing unwanted robocalls and robotexts

Unwanted calls and texts are the number one consumer complaint to the FCC.

Now, the FCC has announced a "proposal to protect Americans from unwanted robocalls, spam text messages, and telemarketing calls. The proposal addresses two dozen petitions that sought clarity on how the Commission enforces the Telephone Consumer Protection Act."

The FCC says that the proposal will close loopholes and strengthen existing consumer protections. The FCC Commissioners will vote on the proposal at an open meeting on June 18, 2015.

An FCC fact sheet about the proposal is here.
