U. S. Senate passes Pallone-Thune TRACED Act unanimously

The U. S. Senate passed the Pallone-Thune Telephone Robocall Abuse Criminal Enforcement and Deterrence (TRACED) Act on December 19, 2019, with a unanimous vote.

John Thune (R-SD)

“Illegal robocalls have flooded Americans’ phone to the point that folks don’t want to pick up their phone up at all,” said John Thune, a sponsor of the bill. “While the TRACED Act may not eliminate all the robocalls Americans receive, it will go a long way toward making it safe to answer your phone again.”

The legislation first passed in the Senate on May 23, 2019. Then it passed the U. S. House, with changes, on December 4, 2019. This final Senate vote was to approve the version passed in the House.

Mike Doyle (D-PA)

Rep. Mike Doyle, a cosponsor of the bill in the House, said that the legislation is “likely to be signed into law the next week or so.”
