FCC Unveils Major TCPA Initiative

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced a new Telephone Consumer Protection Act-related effort to thwart the growing robocall issue yesterday, the Washington Post reports.

The two-part plan aims to create a national database of reassigned phone numbers and will also give more clarity on the classification of text messaging under that law that will give carriers more flexibility to block spam texts. The article says that business groups like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and consumer groups like the National Consumer Law Center have supported the creation of a reassigned number database.

The FCC will vote on the proposal in December.
