Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill announced he is leading a bipartisan coalition, both public and private, of 51 attorneys general and 12 telecommunications companies that have agreed to adopt eight principles to fight illegal robo-calls. This agreement will help protect phone users from illegal robocalls and make it easier for attorneys general to investigate and prosecute violators.
A-G Hill said “These companies are stepping up to the plate and committing themselves to be part of the solution”. Hill also said “Collaboration will be a key component" of going forward in stopping illegal robocalls.
The coalition of attorneys general was led by Attorney General Hill along with North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein and New Hampshire Attorney General Gordon MacDonald. It includes the attorneys general from all 50 states and Washington D.C.
The coalition of companies includes: AT&T, Bandwidth, CenturyLink, Charter, Comcast, Consolidated, Frontier, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular, Verizon and Windstream.
