FCC bolsters do-not-call list

June 18, 2008|From Times Wire Services

The Federal Communications Commission voted to require telemarketers to continue complying with the national do-not-call registry, which bars them from dialing more than 157 million telephone numbers.

The commission's order implements a law that made the 5-year-old list permanent. The law, enacted in February, prevented registrations from automatically expiring this year. Without the extension, consumers would have had to register their numbers again to avoid unwanted sales calls.
