April 27, 2021 — Comments

National Consumer Law Center filed comments on behalf of its low-income clients and Consumer Action, Consumer Federation of America, Consumer Reports, EPIC, National Association of Consumer Advocates, and U.S. PIRG, supporting in part and opposing in part the petitions for reconsideration of the new regulations limiting unwanted automated calls issued in late 2020 by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) as required by the TRACED Act.

The petition for Partial Reconsideration filed by ACA International, the Edison Electric
Institute, the Cargo Airline Association & the American Association of Healthcare Administrative Management (“ACA Petition”) includes four requests to the Commission.

As explained in these comments, at this juncture the groups support the first request, oppose the second request, partially support the third request but urge the Commission to reduce rather than increase the number of calls that can be made, and support the fourth request.
