Tauzin Celebrates Swift Passage Of Do-Not-Call Legislation

The House has passed a bill 412-8 that would allow the ‘Do Not Call’ registry to go into effect. Responding to a federal district court’s ruling earlier in the week that blocked the Federal Trade Commission’s national do-not-call registry from going into effect, House Commerce Committee Chairman Billy Tauzin, R-La. and ranking member John Dingell, D-Mich. introduced legislation reaffirming the FTC’s authority to establish and enforce the pro-consumer registry. The Senate was expected to vote on a nearly identical measure.
The registry is meant to allow consumers the choice of whether they wished to be called by telemarketers. A federal judge said earlier this week the registry was beyond the scope of the FTC’s authority.
