One of the stranger sagas of the first year of Joe Biden’s presidency is his failure to nominate a permanent chair and fifth commissioner to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
The FCC voted to adopt this rule at its meeting on May 21, 2021.
On Tuesday, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced its latest effort to combat illegal robocalls: the creation of the Robocall Mitigation Database. Voice service providers will be required to use the database to inform the FCC of their efforts at mitigating unlawful robocalls.
December 30, 2020 marks the one year anniversary of President Donald Trump signing the Pallone-Thune TRACED Act into law. The law, whose name is an acronym for Telephone Robocall Abuse Criminal Enforcement and Deterrence, is the first major federal telemarketing legislation in more than a decade.
Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai announced on Monday that he will leave the commission on January 20, 2021, the date that Joe Biden is expected to be inaugurated as president. While Pai’s term as Chairman was not set to end until June 2021, this decision to step down follows the usual precedent when the presidency changes hands between parties.
