Anti-robocall bill passes almost unanimously in the Senate

Senators have overwhelmingly backed a bill to combat robocalls. Despite the introduction of the Do Not Call registry in 2003, robocalls are still plaguing Americans and placing vulnerable members of society at risk of falling victim to scammers. The bill now goes to the House for further consideration -- members of that chamber have also introduced other bills to tackle robocalls.
