Another Representative Sends Letter to FCC Chairman Pai Addressing the Need for TCPA Clarity

Last month, Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai responded to letters from three representatives on the need for Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) clarity and the ongoing issue of robocalls. On October 4, 2018, Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX) added his voice to the conversation by also sending a letter to Chairman Pai.

Rep. Burgess’s letter echoes the sentiments of those sent previously by Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO), Rep. David McKinley (R-WV), and Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY). The Burgess letter commends the FCC on its efforts to crack down on illegal robocalls while also stressing the need for the FCC to clarify and modernize the TCPA, especially after the ACA International v. FCC decision. Rep. Burgess urged the FCC to create a TCPA framework that “protects consumers while maintaining the ability of good faith callers to contact customers.”
