NY Gov. Hochul just signed bills curbing robocalls

SOURCE: Consumer Alert: Gov. Hochul just signed a package of bills to curb robocalls, what this means for you

Under this new legislation:

  • Telecommunications companies must block calls for certain numbers (to prevent calls from coming in across different providers).
  • Providers must make sure a call to you is actually coming from the number that shows up.
  • Companies are now allowed to block calls from certain numbers likely to be fake.

Thanks for the info, @OfclyGoodenough! Way to go, New York state!
