Posted April 20, 2020 by dyi

CUNA sent a letter urging the FCC to act more quickly on the petition for expedited declaratory rule, clarification, or waiver, filed by CUNA and other trade associations. The petition asked the FCC to find that calls or texts relaying information related to financial relief efforts and other actions necessitated by the governments’ response to COVID-19 fall within the emergency purposes exception to the proscriptions of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”) that bar autodialed calls to cell phones without prior consent.
