Groups Support Proposal to Control Prerecorded Calls

Consumer Federation of America joined Consumer Reports, the Electronic Privacy Information Center, the National Association of Consumer Advocates, and the National Consumer Law Center in comments to the Federal Communications Commission supporting its proposal to provide consumers with the ability to opt-out of prerecorded calls that are exempted from the restrictions of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. The groups also suggested numerical limits and other ways to provide consumers with effective control of such calls.
