In Colorado, a law to ban the use of automated dialing systems for certain calls died in committee.
The State Veterans and Military Affairs committee voted to kill a bill that would have banned most robocalls in Colorado Wednesday.
The committee voted 4 to 1 against the proposal that would have banned the automated dialing systems of prerecorded messages that Colorado Attorney General John Suthers said were “uniquely intrusive” to privacy.
“We presented a bill to limit robocalls that addressed all constitutional concerns and I am disappointed that the Senate Committee voted it down,” Suthers said in a statement.
Opponents said the bill would violate free speech rights.
