Obama wants to limit TCPA's application to government calls

In President Obama's plan for economic growth and deficit reduction, he is proposing to relax a portion of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act as applied to government debt collection efforts. The law, as it currently stands, restricts the ability to make debt collection calls to cell phones. On September 19th, Obama published his overall plan, which includes his new policy to "allow agencies to contact delinquent debtors via their cellular phones. The Administration also proposes to amend the Communications Act of 1934 to facilitate collection of debts owed to or guaranteed by the Federal Government, by facilitating contact of delinquent debtors who are most readily reached on their cell phones." The proposal also explained President Obama's reasoning as follows, "this provision is expected to provide substantial increases in collections, particularly as an increasing share of households no longer have landlines and rely instead on cell phones." Private debt collectors would not benefit from this change, but certainly would not be opposed to it.
