The US Representative's House has adopted the bipartisan "Stopping Bad Robocalls Act" which requires calls to be verified and allows the FCC to take action against spam callers.
Abrar Al-Heeti for CNET:
The House on Wednesday adopted a two-party bill designed to stop robocalls. The measure, called the Stopping Bad Robocalls Act, passed with a poll of 429 to 3.
Rep. Frank Pallone, a New Jersey democrat … and Greg Walden, a Republican from Oregon, introduced the bill for the House of Representatives last month. If adopted by law, it will require carriers to use technology to verify numbers displayed on the caller ID and allow the Federal Communications Commission to take action against robocallers.
Good news The house just passed the Stopping Bad Robocalls Act

MacDailyNews Take: Ok, now let the house cooperate with the Senate to make a bill that the president can sign in the law ASAP!
