NBC News reports on ILR’s efforts to reform the TCPA

“The ‘explosion of class action litigation’ involving prohibited robocalls to mobile phones – with potential penalties that could reach into the billions — is a serious problem, said Harold Kim, executive vice president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Institute for Legal Reform,” reports NBC News.

“This litigation has created an enormous amount of risk and has had a chilling effect on legitimate businesses, large and small, who are trying to communicate with their customers,” Kim said.

“Business groups want, among other things: a cap on damage awards, a statute of limitations, an exemption from legal action for a company acting in good faith or that called a reassigned mobile number that had belonged to a previous customer,” reports NBC News.
