Senate Bill Calls For $10,000 Fine Per Illegal Robocall

 

WASHINGTON (CBS) – A bill proposed in the U.S. Senate would hit those behind annoying robocalls with big fines.

Sen. Ed Markey, a Massachusetts Democrat and Republican Sen. John Thune, of South Dakota, are sponsoring the TRACED act to crack down on robocall scams. They say their bill would let the FCC fine scammers up to $10,000 per robocall and give regulators more time to find offenders. It would also require the adoption of call authentication technologies and make it easier for consumers to block unwanted calls.
