TRACED Act passed U.S. House of Representatives
Posted December 05, 2019 by CUNA Advocacy

The House voted to pass the Telephone Robocall Abuse Criminal Enforcement and Deterrence (TRACED) Act, legislation designed to combat unwanted robocalls via the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.  Specifically, the TRACED Act is a bipartisan effort to pass legislation that addresses illegal robocalls and seeks to improve enforcement of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, while recognizing the need to provide recourse to those legitimate callers whose calls may be erroneously blocked as a result.
