In May 2021, the Florida legislature passed Senate Bill 1120 (Florida Robocall Bill), which updates the state’s existing telemarking laws. The proposed changes parallel certain provisions in the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), including:
- Requiring prior express written consent for calls made using an automated selection and dialing system; and
- Creating a private cause of action for any violation of the do not call provisions.
