‘Do Not Call’ Law Could See Revamp
By Patrick Lynn
Wisconsin could soon dissolve its no-call list in favor of a federal one.
The Wisconsin Assembly this week unanimously passed a bill which would end the state’s no-call list and ban telemarketers from calling state residents via a federal no- call list.
The same bill was unanimously approved by the state Senate last year, and it now moves to Gov. Scott Walker’s desk for consideration.
Wisconsin residents currently can register with the state’s no-call list but must renew periodically. Under the proposed law, the Federal Trade Commission’s list would not require residents to re-register.
Complaints would still need to be filed with the state Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection.
