Twilio Statement on Congressional Passage of the Pallone-Thune TRACED Act

Twilio congratulates both the House and Senate on unanimously passing S.151, the Pallone-Thune TRACED Act, the nation’s first and much-needed federal legislation for cracking down on unwanted robocalls. The legislation will aid efforts among law enforcement authorities, government agencies and the communications industry to stop the bad calls and restore  consumers’ faith that they will receive the calls they want. With its strong emphasis on the implementation of the SHAKEN/STIR protocol and consumer protection efforts, we expect to see a dramatic change in the robocall landscape in the next 12 to 18 months. We would like to express our appreciation to the authors of this legislation for their leadership in this bipartisan effort: Congressman Pallone (D-NJ), Congressman Walden (R-OR), Senator Ed Markey (D-MA), and Senator John Thune (R-SD). Twilio urges President Trump to sign the bill into law, bringing relief as soon as possible to consumers from illegal robocalls. Twilio Corp.
