Comments:I recommend status quo or improving the metric to measure the precise period of a calling campaign. Calling campaigns have peaks and valleys. It is most beneficial to measure the precise period of a calling campaign. To use a 30 day window dilutes the metric to a useless number. That is because, under the proposed option, counting could theoretically occur when there are no calls being made. In any event, the citizen MUST continue to have the ability to identify the caller and to simply OPT OUT from any and ALL calls. Thank you for the opportunity to comment.
