Consumer Reports sponsors California bill to fight robocalls

Consumer Reports is proud to sponsor AB 3007, which would give consumers important protections over robocalls: unwanted, autodialed calls and texts. For years, in response to consumer outcry, we have worked in the marketplace, at the FCC, in Congress, and in the states, to ensure that consumers have the choice over whether they will receive a robocall. Nearly three-quarters of a million consumers have signed our petition calling on the phone companies to offer free, effective robocall-blocking tools, and many thousands have also signed our petitions calling for additional federal protections from robocalls. It is in accordance with these efforts that we support AB 3007.
