John Deeth Blog: Anti-Robocall Bill Unlikely to Advance

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

"Everyone's got caucus hangover right now," State Rep. Ray Zirkelbach
said of the pre-recorded calls still echoing in the ears of Iowans.
The Monticello Democrat is trying to put a stop to auto-dialed
"robocalls" by making the tactic illegal in Iowa. But critics of the
bill have free speech concerns, and Zirkelbach's own frank assessment
is that the bill, though popular with his constituents, won't advance
this year. Party leaders "haven't even talked to me about it," said
Zirkelbach. "I'm sure a ton of people are against it." Still, he
stands by House File 2008. "Everybody complains about (the calls) but
no one does anything about it."
