The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC), and the National Consumer Law Center (NCLC) on behalf of its low-income clients, along with Consumer Action, Consumer Federation of America, National Association of Consumer Advocates, National Consumers League, Public Knowledge, and U.S. PIRG, filed comments to encourage the Federal Communications Commission (“Commission” or “FCC”) to prioritize protecting consumers from widescale nuisance and fraud facilitated through unwanted and illegal text messages placed through the U.S. telephone network.

We urge the Commission to extend additional protections for consumers from illegal and unwanted robotexts. The different types of robotexts that harm consumers require different mechanisms to address them.
