On July 16, 2019, Mike Romano and Brian Ford of NTCA, and NTCA Member, Denny Law, of Golden West Telecommunications met with Nicholas Degani, Senior Counsel, and Nirali Patel, Wireline Advisor to Chairman Ajit Pai.  NTCA discussed how the Commission can facilitate RLEC's full participation in the SHAKEN/STIR caller-ID "spoofing" mitigation framework by adopting policies that will not incur transport charges upon small carriers and the rural customers they serve.  NTCA noted our members have a strong commitment to combatting the scourge of illegal caller-ID spoofing.
