The Federal Communications Commission ("FCC" or the "Commission")
continued its long-running fight against unwanted robocalls earlier
this month, but the steps the Commission proposed may not make a
significant impact immediately. On Friday, February 15th, the FCC
released a notice of proposed rulemaking ("NPRM") seeking comment on
issues associated with implementing new caller ID spoofing rules
adopted by Congress as part of the 2018 RAY BAUM Act ("RB Act"). The
proposals are part of a broader set of Commission actions targeting
the scourge of robocalls.
