(Washington, DC) -- Families may be able to eat dinner in peace following a new proposal that would limit the number of unwanted home phone calls.
The Federal Communications Commission passed a proposal that would give the phone companies more power to block phony numbers that aren't in use anymore from "robocall" telemarketers. Consumer complaints on unnecessary "robocalls" increased to over 2.4 million calls a month.
The proposal has to go through a public review period before a final vote will be taken, which is expected later this year.
