Posted May 01, 2019 by CUNA Advocacy

CUNA joined a number of trade associations in writing to Chairman Doyle and Ranking Member Latta prior to the Subcommittee’s hearing on the problem of illegal automated calls.

The signers of the letter strongly support and share the goal of thwarting unlawful actors that seek to defraud or commit other unlawful acts against consumers. Appropriately tailored efforts are critical to protect consumers from deception and other harm.  The also urged the Committee to support the Federal Communications Commission’s unprecedented work to bring enforcement actions against illegal actors, while facilitating the ability of legitimate businesses to place valued and important calls to their customers using modern communications technologies.

On behalf of America’s credit unions and their 115 million members, CUNA will continue to advocate that Congress work with the FCC to provide clarity surrounding legitimate informational communications, while continuing their work to impede truly abusive calls.
