Oklahoma lawmakers discuss ending unwanted robocalls

Oklahoma lawmakers have discussed ending unwanted robocalls. Many people probably receive multiple robocalls per day. Oklahoma lawmakers are doing what they can to put a stop to this. The bill is called the Telephone Solicitation Act of 2022 and on Monday the majority of the House voted in favor. Rep. Logan Phillips said this bill will help stop those annoying calls. “We got them all. It was a big pain for everybody in Oklahoma,” Phillips said. He discussed robocalls. “We are focused on attacking these companies. They are bad actors in the state of Oklahoma and end these robocalls for all of our constituents,” Phillips said. The bill will not only stop bad actors completely, but also limit calls from legitimate businesses. “We gave them exemptions. They can still operate within limits. They can’t operate robocalls before 8 a.m. or after 8 p.m.,” Phillips said. Phillips hopes this will protect the vulnerable community. “I’m focusing on that primarily for our seniors, for our constituents who are at risk. If we’re going to maintain our way of life and maintain the safety of our people, we need to stop these actors from operating inside of Oklahoma,” Phillips said. The bill still has to pass through the Senate side of the Capitol before it goes to Gov. Kevin Stitt for his signature.
