"I urge you to oppose any bill that would give corporations virtually free rein to call cell phones.As a member of the Energy and Commerce Committee, you have the ability to stop H.R.3035, a bill that would end 20 years ofconsumer protection. Take a stand for consumer privacy and protection and oppose this bill."
It's unsurprising that this bill is being pushed by corporate interests like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the American Bankers Association.
And since big business already has lobbyists on Capitol Hill whipping support for this legislation, it is even more important that the members of the Energy and Commerce Committee hear from consumers that this harmful legislation should not even be brought up for a vote.
This overreach by corporations has to be stopped. It is unreasonable and unfair to expect consumers to pay when telemarketers make unwanted calls to their cell phones. But if the Energy and Commerce Committee doesn't stop this bill from coming to a vote, it will be harder to stop this harmful legislation.
