Dear Senator,
I hope you will vote to Strengthen the Telemarketing Law.

Strengthening the State’s Telemarketing Law
Legislation that responds to widespread consumer complaints about unwanted telemarketing and robo-calls has passed the House.

House Bill 105 would improve the state’s telemarketing law by making registrations on the do-not-call list permanent, rather than re-registering after five years; prohibiting the calls on legal holidays; requiring telemarketers using a robo-call system to provide an opt-out process within the first few seconds of each call; and requiring robo-calls left on a voicemail to include a toll-free call back number that would directly connect a person to an opt-out process.

These commonsense reforms would make life easier for Pennsylvanians who do not want to receive so many telemarketing solicitations or robo-calls. Registration on the list will not prevent all calls; individuals with an existing relationship with a company, along with charitable and political calls, are exempt.

The bill now goes to the Senate for review.
