WASHINGTON D.C. — Elected officials representing Oswego County on Capitol Hill are joining the fight against “unwanted, intrusive and fraudulent” robocalls.

The Telephone Robocall Abuse Criminal Enforcement and Deterrence (TRACED) Act — a bipartisan piece of legislation that aims to establish increased regulations for automated, telemarketing-motivated robocalls through the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) —   sailed through the House of Representatives last week, adding to the previously proposed reforms aiming to tackle robocalls.  

The bill would extend the statute of limitations from two to four years for law enforcement entities to prosecute illegal robocallers.
