EPIC Advises Congress on Modernizing Telemarketing Rules to Protect Consumers

EPIC has sent a letter to the House Energy and Commerce Committee in advance of the hearing on “Modernizing the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.” The telemarketing law bars telemarketers and robocallers from contacting consumers by phone fax, or text without prior consent. EPIC urged the Committee to ensure that an update to the law “protects consumers from unwanted commercial communications.” EPIC said legal rights should be “robust, enforceable and minimally burdensome for consumers." Earlier this year, EPIC filed an amicus brief in support of strengthening TCPA protections for consumers. EPIC has also testified before Congress about the telemarketing law and submitted many comments concerning its implementation.
