Robocalls Are Illegal in Montana [AUDIO]
You’re relaxing at home watching the Olympics or having dinner and the phone rings. It’s an automated call from a politician or a political campaign, commonly referred to as a ‘robocall’. According to Montana Commissioner of Political Practices Jim Murray, robocalls are actually illegal in Montana.
However, Murray says the enforcement of that law does not fall within the authority of his office. The complainant must go to the City Police or County Sheriff’s office and let them know they’ve received a robocall. So, if you’re on the receiving end of an automated political phone call, take down the number on your called ID and contact the local police, because that campaign is breaking Montana law.
