A BILL

    To amend the Federal Trade Commission Act to eliminate the common carrier exemption for telecommunications companies.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. Short title.

This Act may be cited as the “Robocall Elimination At Last Protecting Every American Consumer’s Ears Act of 2018” or the “REAL PEACE Act of 2018”.

SEC. 2. Findings.

Congress finds that—

(1) illegal robocalls and spam calls are a growing annoyance and problem for the people of the United States; and

(2) exemptions within the Federal Trade Commission Act (15 U.S.C. 41 et seq.) limit the enforcement capabilities of the Federal Trade Commission with respect to illegal robocalling and spam calling.

SEC. 3. Eliminating the common carrier exemption for telecommunications companies.

(a) In general.—Section 4 of the Federal Trade Commission Act (15 U.S.C. 44) is amended by striking “the Act entitled ‘An Act to regulate commerce,’ approved February 14, 1887, and all Acts amendatory thereof and supplementary thereto and the Communications Act of 1934” and inserting “subtitle IV of title 49, United States Code,”.

(b) Rule of construction.—Nothing in this Act, or an amendment made by this Act, may be construed to displace any authority of the Federal Communications Commission or the States to take action to protect net neutrality or otherwise protect consumers and competition, including in the provision of broadband services.
