Legislative Response to SCOTUS Autodialer Decision On the Horizon

A Congressional response to the Supreme Court's decision in Facebook, Inc. v. Duguid, which narrowed the definition of an "autodialer" under the TCPA, may be looming.  SCOTUS called for a legislative response to update the antiquated TCPA (for instance, cellular phones were not ubiquitous at the time Congress passed the law), and since Duguid stripped the TCPA of much of its might, we may soon see an amendment.

“The legislative history for the TCPA makes it clear that Congress was not only concerned with corporate America randomly generating numbers and calling those numbers, but was also concerned with corporate America buying lists to make telemarketing calls,” the lawmakers wrote in their statement.
