Do Not Call!
Congressman Doyle said in press release that, The ‘Do Not Call’ list was one of the most popular actions the federal government has ever taken….It makes no sense to force people to sign up again every couple of years. Unfortunately, that’s just what will happen if action isn’t taken.” He went on to say, “I suspect very few people are saying, ‘gee, I really miss getting those telemarketing calls at dinnertime – I wish the government would take me off the do not call list’. That’s why I’m introducing legislation to make the federal ‘Do Not Call’ list permanent.”
Congressman Doyle’s legislation, the Do-Not-Call Improvement Act of 2007, would eliminate the existing expiration of listings on the federal Do Not Call registry. If passed this bill would make it so individuals would not have to worry about signing up for the Do Not Call list every five years. The Do-Not-Call Improvement Act of 2007 would not change the existing law allowing individuals to take their names off the Do Not Call list if they wished to do so.
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) manages the National Do Not Call Registry. It is easy enough to go to their website to resign up, but how many Americans will remember that their five years are up and they need to reregister. Congressman Doyle’s legislation will make sure we can enjoy the peace and quiet of dinner with our families without the interruption of telemarketers.
