NAFCU files joint brief against FCC over phone act rule

WASHINGTON, DC (December 3, 2015) — The National Association of Federal Credit Unions (NAFCU) joined with other petitioner-intervenors today in filing a brief that challenges the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) order on Telephone Consumer Protection Act prohibitions on autodialed calls.

“We are pleased to submit our joint brief today joining other petitioner-intervenors in pursuing the litigation against the FCC to help protect credit unions’ right to communicate with their members,” said Carrie Hunt, NAFCU’s senior vice president of government affairs and general counsel.

NAFCU is a party in the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s petition for a review of the FCC order; it was granted leave to join in the action this October. The FCC order responds to 19 petitions from various businesses and organizations that, among other things, sought clarification of FCC rule changes under TCPA that took effect in 2013.


The National Association of Federally-Insured Credit Unions is the only national trade association focusing exclusively on federal issues affecting the nation’s federally-insured credit unions. NAFCU membership is direct and provides credit unions with the best in federal advocacy, education and compliance assistance. For more information on NAFCU, go to or @NAFCU on Twitter.
