Amidst the polarization in Washington, there remains one thing nearly
everyone agrees on: no one likes robocalls. Last month, the House
passed the "Stopping Bad Robocalls Act," which directs the FCC to take
several steps to curb robocallers and adopts stiffer penalties for
robocallers (particularly robocallers who intentionally violate the
law). The bill awaits further action in the Senate, which passed its
own robocall legislation, the Traced Act, earlier in the year.
