Well, hopefully the all the political crap in the house will not hamper this bill from being implemented. The Senate approved it, but the House Democrats have their own bill so they may not approve it. I did not see a thread about this in the last few days in the new section. It is from the 23rd.
With the Democrats and Trump deadlocked because of name throwing on both sides, this bill will probably just be tabled, the House has become dysfunctional since the Democrats got into power. .
A robocall is a phone call that uses a computerized autodialer to deliver a pre-recorded message, as if from a robot. Robocalls are often associated with political and telemarketing phone campaigns, but can also be used for public-service or emergency announcements. Some robocalls use personalized audio messages to simulate an actual personal phone call.

Can you link to both the senate and house bills so we can read them?

I wonder why Rand Paul voted against it.
The legislation would accelerate the rollout of so-called "call authentication" technologies the industry is currently developing, which could cut down on the number of calls coming from unverified numbers. Proponents say the new industry standards -- known as SHAKEN/STIR -- could increase phone users' confidence in their caller ID. The protocols are designed to authenticate callers who are using their rightful phone numbers and to eliminate calls from spammers who are using phone numbers they don't rightfully own.
