More than a dozen bipartisan members of Congress wrote to Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai Monday asking for CUNA-requested clarifications of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, as presented in its petition.
Numerous comments by credit unions and state leagues, other trade associations, consumer groups, and other third parties support CUNA’s petition calling for reforms to the TCPA, and CUNA highlighted these in its response comments to the petition.
CUNA is urging credit union stakeholders to submit comments to the FCC supporting its TCPA petition. CUNA filed its petition last month, and the FCC opened it for comment a week later, with comments due Nov. 6.
CUNA filed a petition Friday with the Federal Communications Commission regarding the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, outlining how it can provide credit unions with regulatory relief from the onerous requirements for communicating with member-owners. In the petition, CUNA proposes two routes for providing credit unions with greater ability to communicate with consumers about information they want and need on their cell phone.
Stakeholders have until Aug. 28 to comment on an FCC notice of inquiry addressing the issue of robocalls to re-assigned phone numbers, which could impact credit unions making phone calls with certain equipment.
