Governor Hochul is taking aim at putting an end to those annoying robocalls.

She signed a new law on Monday that's intended to build on federal action to better protect New Yorkers who are tired of the predatory calls. Under the legislation, telecommunication companies now have to block robocalls from certain numbers which are most likely illegitimate and prevent their spread across additional providers. Voice service providers also must implement an authentication framework to properly validate that a call is coming from the number it displays.
