KTRK: Katy ISD apologizes for robocalls, admits breaking federal law
The Katy Independent School District apologized this week for enabling a political action committee to send robocalls to residents' home, work, and cell-phone numbers before the Nov. 2 election, Houston ABC affiliate KTRK reports:
The district says when it released those numbers it thought it was in accordance with privacy laws, but turns out it wasn't.
The superintendent sent out his apology after the district admitted the privacy violation to [KTRK investigative unit] 13 Undercover.
The calls came from Team Katy, a PAC that favored a proposed $459.8 million bond package for school-district funding. Katy residents' ire over the calls did not stop voters from approving the measure.
