41 States Commit To Working With FCC Against Robocalls

Source: NAAG Press Release

The National Association of Attorneys General (“NAAG”) sent a letter to the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) on behalf of 41 states’ attorneys general commending the FCC for its leadership in combatting robocalls and sharing their commitment to working collaboratively with the FCC via information-sharing agreements. The lead states in this effort are Colorado, Tennessee and North Carolina.

“We believe these information sharing agreements represent an important continuation of the progress made to date in combatting robocalls. The opportunity to enter these agreements honors our country’s tradition of federalism and evidences a mutual commitment to working towards addressing complex issues collaboratively,” reads the letter.

While not all attorneys general who signed the letter have entered into information sharing agreements with the FCC, the letter demonstrates a commitment to do so. Those who previously signed an information sharing agreement with the FCC reaffirmed in the letter their commitment to work collaboratively in the future.

The organization of attorneys general previously called on the FCC to block illegal robocalls from other countries, and joined a bipartisan effort to urge Congress to act against robocalls.
