SD Attorney General joins letter urging action against AI calls
South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley joined 25 other state Attorney Generals in a letter to the Federal Communications Commission.
The letter urges the FCC to place restrictions on the use of artificial intelligence in telemarketing calls.
The bipartisan decision to send the letter comes after the FCC launched an official inquiry and requested feedback on AI in relation to the telephone Consumer Protection Act.
“These calls manipulate consumers by sounding like a real person,” said Jackley. “Scammers are always looking for ways to harm consumers, and the federal government needs to act.”
The letter was signed by state Attorney Generals from Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Washington D.C., Hawaii, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Vermont and Washington.
