PACE Position on TRACED Act
PACE is keenly aware of how the ever-growing plague of illegal calls to consumers infringes on consumers’ right to privacy and, all too often, results in consumers suffering economic harm by turning over personal information to scam artists.
PACE supports efforts to strengthen the Federal Communications Commission’s (“FCC”) arsenal of weapons against illegal calls, encourages adoption of technologies to reduce illegal calls and identify illegal callers, and educate consumers on avoiding telephone scams.
The Telephone Robocall Abuse Criminal Enforcement and Deterrence Act (“TRACED Act” or “Act”) advances the goal of protecting consumers from illegal calls but, in PACE’s opinion, needs minor revisions to bring clarity and protect the rights of legal callers.
