TEXAS – The state of Texas was no stranger to robocalls last year.

According to a study from YouMail, Texas received a total of 6.7 billion robocalls, which estimates to roughly 210.5 calls per person affected.

However, those numbers could change in 2020.

President Donald Trump recently signed a bill that will fine companies $10,000 for each illegally placed call.
