FCC: “No Issues” with TeleForum
August 3, 2015 by Brian Osborne


On Wednesday Roll Call posted an article titled “Tele-Town Halls Barred Under FCC Ruling.” This article is deeply misleading and has forced the FCC to clarify and Roll Call to backtrack. Let me set the record straight. 
There have been no new regulations, no new rule changes, and TeleForums are not “barred” by the FCC. 
This article is the unfortunate product of confusing testimony and lazy journalism.
Here’s the FCC’s clarifying statement:
“The Commission’s recent robocall clarifications didn’t impose new restrictions on tele-town halls or Congressional outreach to constituents. Since 1991, informational calls to landlines have been permitted without restriction, while such calls to mobile phones have required consumer consent. As long as vendors for tele-town halls continue to adhere to the decades-old rules, use of these services should pose no issue.” 
Here at Front Porch Strategies we pride ourselves on our free mobile scrubbing technology to keep our clients TCPA compliant and remove every mobile number at the time the broadcast is launched.  Additionally, we offer free, consent-driven data tools like that allow you to register your constituents mobile numbers for all of your events.
We will continue to stay on top of all regulations that may affect our work together.  If you have any questions or concerns don’t hesitate to contact me directly at or (419)569-2417.
