Senator Denise Grimsley files the “Florida Call-Blocking Act” for the 2018 legislative session


Senator Denise Grimsley (R-Lake Placid) has filed the “Florida Call-Blocking Act” for consideration during the 2018 legislative session. The Florida Senate website issued a press release announcing the bill.

Senate Bill 962 would allow telecommunication carriers to offer special call-blocking software. The software filters out persistent and annoying robocalls. Many of these calls stem from overseas, which ignore restrictions on such solicitations.

Senator Grimsley was elected to the Florida Senate in 2012 and has sponsored numerous other bills. She is also running for Agriculture Commissioner in the 2018 election.

The 2018 Legislative Session begins on January 9, 2018. Senator Grimsley represents District 26, which encompasses DeSoto, Glades, Hardee, Highlands, Okeechobee, and parts of Polk, Lee, and Charlotte counties.

  1. When I had Verizon, they offered free “Simultaneous Ring”, which allows you to have your calls ring on another phone number as well, and I used NOMOROBO’s free service. The phone also rings there, they have lists of scammers’ phone numbers (you can add others to the lists online), and if it’s a scammer, when your calls ring at NOMOROBO, they hang up the call after it rings once. When that happens, you just chuckle, knowing you beat the bas*ards! As far as I know, Brighthouse/Spectrum, which replaced Verizon here, still doesn’t offer Simultaneous Ring. If the phone companies all offered/had to offer, SR, it would be an easy fix.
