"This should have been a no brainer for him to sign. I can't think of a good reason for him not to sign this bill," Varon said. "If I was in this position again, or if someone else is in this position, what recourse do they have now."
Consumer advocates feel wireless carriers have found a loophole, and can still hold consumers responsible for fraudlent charges.
