CUNA Continues Advocacy Efforts for Modernized TCPA
Posted May 31, 2018 by CUNA Advocacy

CUNA continues active engagement on advocacy efforts at the Federal Communications Commission, urging the Commission to modernize the 1991-enacted Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). As the agency has issued public notice for comments on definitions used within TCPA, including what constitutes an automatic telephone dialing system (ATDS), who is a called party, and how a party may revoke prior express consent under TCPA, CUNA will be reinforcing the views set forth in our Petition for Declaratory Ruling before the Commission last fall. CUNA is also developing comments to the proposed rule regarding a TCPA reassigned numbers database, which are due next week, June 7.
