WASHINGTON D.C. (WEHT) – Congressman Brett Guthrie (R-Ky.) said he applauds the passage of the TRACED Act, which aims to end the practice of illegal robocalls.
“So far this year, Kentuckians have received over 500 million robocalls. That’s over 100 calls per person this year,” said Guthrie in a speech on the House floor in support of the TRACED Act. “Scammers have found creative ways to trick people into thinking that their calls are legitimate. These calls have wreaked havoc for private citizens, hospitals, small businesses, and everyone in between.”
The Senate must pass the TRACED Act before it can be signed into law by President Donald Trump.
