CUNA Comments on FCC's Blocked Call Ruling
Posted May 31, 2019 by CUNA Advocacy

CUNA continues to push on the Federal Communication Commission's draft declaratory ruling on default block calling, this time with a letter to Secretary Marlene Dortch. The letter emphasized that the draft declaratory ruling is inconsistent with the statutory requirements of the TCPA and would potentially deprive credit union members of important and sometimes, legally required communications from their financial institution.

CUNA has previously written to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's Director, Kathy Kraninger to urge her to intervene with the FCC for a delay. CUNA has also written to the NCUA's Board Chairman, Rodney Hood, with similar concerns.
