Bill to Make No Call List Permanent and Prohibit Robocalls Advances
Legislation I have authored to make the No Call List permanent and prohibit robocalls for those registered on the no call list passed out of the Senate Committee on Energy, Consumer Protection, and Government Reform on a unanimous 5-0 vote last week.  Senate Bill 97 (SB 97) would remove the current requirement for Wisconsin residents to sign-up for the No Call List every two years by adopting the federal No Call List in Wisconsin.  The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection (DATCP) would still be responsible for investigating complaints and enforcing state laws relating to telemarketing calls.  In addition, SB 97 would prohibit robocalls to those on the No Call List with very limited exceptions such as school and emergency notification messages.  The bill is now available to be taken up by the full State Senate.  Find out more about this legislation at here.
