Congress Hangs Up on Cell Phone Robocalls

Congress Hangs Up on Cell Phone Robocalls

A bill introduced in the House of Representatives, HR 3035, the “Mobile Informational Call Act of 2011,” would have allowed telemarketing robocalls to cell phones at the subscribers expense. After an understandable outcry of opposition, Congress realized that HR 3035 was a wrong number. Sponsors Rep. Lee Terry (R, NE-2) and Rep. Edolphus Towns (D, NY-10) withdrew the bill from consideration.
