ROCHESTER, Minn.- We all get the call from unknown numbers.
US Senators Amy Klobuchar and Tina Smith joined 12 other senators calling for the federal communications commission to set protections for people against unwanted calls.
Niesha Conley just moved to Rochester and even gets calls when she’s teaching her students.
“A reward that's expiring or there's a warrant for my arrest from my classroom ... who knew,” she said.
The proposed penalties for people behind those robocalls could be a possible fine up to $20,000 or a 3-year prison term.
