Regarding "3 strikes", what 1052-state says is true -- these laws are pretty broken, and a few people have gotten life for something stupid like jaywalking, jaywalking again, and lifting a candy bar. It also leads to the attitude that if you have 2 strikes and someone is going to so much as wirte you a ticket, that you have "nothing to lose" (and this is essentially true...) so they'll go on shootouts and high speed chases on the chance that they'll get away since they are already guaranteed life in prison anyway.
Back on topic, there was indeed a law recently passed regarding political robocalls. Most politicians seemed to already know that calling cell phones is greasy as hell, but it was not actually illegal until this point. This law was SUPPOSED to make it illegal to call anyone on the do not call list, but the politicians (those rat bastards) pulled that out and watered it down to cell phones only.
