On February 6, 2020, Senators John Thune (R-SD) and Ed Markey (D-MA) sent Attorney General William Barr a letter reminding him of his responsibility to convene an interagency working group under section 5(a) of the TRACED Act. The group’s mission is to conduct a study of government prosecution of violations of section 227(b) of the Communications Act of 1934 and submit it to Congress by September 25, 2020. The working group will include representatives from the FCC, the Department of State, the Department of Commerce, the Department of Homeland Security, the Federal Trade Commission, the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection, and non-federal stakeholders such as the National Association of Attorneys General. The TRACED Act requires that the working group to consider a range of new approaches § 227(b) violations, such as increasing state enforcement power, establishing new agreements between the United States and foreign governments, enhancing forfeiture and imprisonment penalties, and regulating entities that work with common carriers “for the specific purpose of carrying, routing, or transmitting a call that constitutes such a violation.”
