Rumble / Trending NewsOn Thursday with a nearly unanimous vote, the Senate approved a bill that would hinder robocalls and ramp up penalties for scammers who make illegal robocalls. Gizmodo reports that The TRACED Act was introduced in November by Massachusetts Senator John Thune, a South Dakota Republican and Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey, a Democrat. The bill would extend the statute of limitations, so the FCC could take action on robocalls up to three years after the calls are made, rather than just a year.
