Washington, DC--The National Consumers League, the nation’s pioneering consumer and worker advocacy organization today applauds Senators Markey (D-MA) and Thune (R-SD)  and Representative Pallone (D-NJ) for the passage of the TRACED Act, and Senator Markey (D-MA) and Representative Eshoo (D-CA) for the passage of the TRUE Fees Act. The Traced Act will provide regulators with the tools they need to crack down on illegal robocalls and the TRUE Fees Act will require cable and satellite TV providers to disclose an “all-in” price for their services.  

The following statement is attributable to NCL Executive Director Sally Greenberg:

"The Passage of the Traced Act and the TRUE Fees act is a win for consumers. Because of these bills, the days of cable companies slamming consumers with hidden fees are numbered, and relief from illegal robocall scams is on the way. NCL applauds the passage of these bills and urges President Trump to quickly sign them into law."
