President Trump is expected to sign this into law. This law will force the FCC and the telephone companies to take action against Robocalls. Telephone companies will not be allowed to charge users for Robocall blocking.

My question is why did I only read about this on a British web site? Why aren't the American news sites covering this?

it has been on the news. However, the reason it might not be quit as big a story is that it was originally passed back in May.
