FCCThe Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced new investigation partnerships with additional state attorneys general to combat robocall scams, including Alaska, California, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, and Washington.

The majority of states have signed Memorandums of Understanding (MOU) with the FCC’s Enforcement Bureau. However, FCC Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel has urged the remaining states to establish investigation partnerships as well. 

Underscoring the importance of this collaboration, Rosenworcel said, “It shows that we are united when it comes to fighting robocalls—urban, rural, north, south, east, and west. Today I invite every state and U.S. territory to join this effort and establish information sharing and cooperation structures with the FCC so we can work together to investigate and put an end to spoofing and robocall scam campaigns.”

The FCC’s robocall investigation partnerships now include the following states:

Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
