WASHINGTON (3/24/16)--Several commissioners with the Federal Communications Commission fielded questions about the Telephone Consumer Protection Act in a U.S. House hearing this week. There were hints from the agency officials that they revisit the definition of “autodialer" within the TCPA.
WASHINGTON (1/20/16)--The Federal Communications Commission filed an answering brief last week with U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia regarding litigation challenging a recent omnibus ruling concerning the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
The recent Federal Communications Commission omnibus Telephone Consumer Protection Act order is arbitrary, capricious and should be vacated, CUNA told the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Wednesday.
Citing the “immense amount of uncertainty and potential liability” that comes with a recent omnibus ruling on the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, CUNA and its fellow financial services organizations wrote to U.S. Senate and House members Friday urging them to hold a hearing.
CUNA is concerned about a recent Federal Communications Commission ruling, and wrote to the National Credit Union Administration this week expressing concerns about how the order will impact the ability of credit unions to communicate with their members.
Since CUNA’s compliance staff compiled a list of changes in mortgage interest reporting under the IRS’s Form 1098, several questions have arisen. CUNA’s compliance staff has been able to connect with a coalition of consumer mortgage lenders to provide answers.
"We look forward to working with him going forward, particularly on getting the field-of-membership modernizations across the finish line," CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle said Monday after learning NCUA Vice Chair Rick Metsger was named chair by President Barack Obama.
