Attorney General Kaul joins coalition to combat illegal robocalls

Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul announced on Thursday that he has joined a coalition to combat illegal robocalls.

According to a news release from the Wisconsin Department of Justice Communications Office, the bipartisan coalition contains 51 attorney generals and 12 phone companies. The agreement will protect phone users from illegal robocalls and simplify the process for prosecuting bad actors.

“The volume of robocalls that people receive needs to be reduced dramatically,” said Attorney General Kaul. “The phone companies that are putting these principles into effect are helping with that effort. I hope other companies will join them.”

The principles address the robocall problem through prevention and enforcement.
