Attorneys General from across the U.S. are joining together to ask Congress to oppose H.R. 3035, also known as The Mobile Informational Call Act of 2011 that would amend the Communications Act of 1934. The M.I.C.A. would make it difficult to enforce state laws against robo-calling which include junk faxes, prerecorded calls or text messages from debt collectors and telemarketers. Montana Attorney General Steve Bullock has joined 53 others in asking Congress to oppose the legislation.

If the M.I.C.A passes it would reverse federal law currently banning all robo-calls to cell phones, even from politicians. For more information visit the State Department of Justice website.
