Wisconsin Legislators Looking At Changes To No-Call List

Friday, March 1st, 2013 at 6:43 am

A new bill in Wisconsin could make changes to registration on Wisconsin’s no-call list. The list is designed to block telemarketers, and under the proposed legislation, enrollment would not need to be renewed every two years.

The Associated Press reports that the bill being circulated for co-sponsorship would make registration of a phone number on the state’s no-call list permanent, instead of requiring it to be renewed every two years. Registration on the federal list is permanent and more than a dozen states have permanent enrollment.

The proposal from Republican Rep. Andre Jacques would also add robocalls to those not allowed for people on the registry. However, political calls would still be allowed.

Calls from nonprofits and those made with a person’s permission or at their request are also allowed.
