The legislature recognizes that telecommunications providers have the 11
ability to block voice calls consistent with federal law and rules promulgated by the
federal communications commission, in particular rule FCC 17-151, adopted 2
November 16, 2017, which provides the following:
A telecommunications provider may block the following types of calls so that 4
they do not reach a called party:
A voice call if the customer to which the originating number is assigned has 6
requested that calls purporting to originate from that number be blocked.
A voice call purporting to originate from a North American Numbering Plan 8
number that is not valid; a valid North American Numbering Plan number that is 9
not allocated to a provider; or a valid North American Numbering Plan number that 10
is allocated to a provider but that is not used, if the provider blocking the calls is the 11
provider to which the number is allocated and confirms that the number is not used, 12
or if the provider blocking the calls obtains verifications from the provider to which 13
the number is allocated that the number is not used.
A provider may not block a voice call placed to 911 under par. (a) 1. or 2.
For purposes of this subsection, a provider may rely on caller identification 16
information to determine the purported originating number without regard to 17
whether the call in fact originated from that number.”.
