Proposal: permanent registration on 'do not call' list

by

MADISON (WSAU)   A state lawmaker says people should no longer have to register every two years to stay on Wisconsin’s popular do-not-call list for telemarketers. Assembly Republican Andre Jacque of De Pere says he’s working on a bill to make registrations on the no-call list permanent. He says registrations on the federal no-call list are permanent – and the same is true in a dozen states.

Wisconsin officials say they require people to re-register every two years to make sure the lists that telemarketers get are up-to-date. Public reminders come out every three months, and they almost always get widespread news coverage.

Jacque also wants to add robo-calls to the sales pitches which are off-limits to those on the state’s no-call list. But political robo-calls would still be allowed. Candidates and their parties can still call everyone.

Charities are also exempt from the no-call list, so are calls to a business’s existing customers.
