U.S. Chamber of Commerce Joins the Growing List of Petitions Against FCC For TCPA Ruling

On the heels of the Consumer Bankers Association announcement of its filing a petition for review of the Federal Communications Commission’s July 10, 2015 Declaratory Ruling and Order, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce joins the band.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations.

“Although we support the rights of consumers as it relates to telephone communications, the FCC overstepped its authority by creating new restrictions on legitimate, good faith communications from businesses to their customers who previously gave their permission to be contacted,” said Harold Kim, executive vice president of the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform (ILR). “These arbitrary new limits will fuel abusive class action lawsuits against businesses.”
