House OKs Looser 'Do-Not-Call' Rules

There was no debate at all in the House this morning as HB 55, making changes to the rules for Idaho’s “do not call list,” passed on a 65-5 vote. The measure would lift the current ban on telephone companies, cellular or cable companies making solicitation calls to their existing customers if they’re on the list; under the bill, those companies could call those customers, but if the customers ask them to stop, they must, or they face penalties including a $500 fine. The bill extends that requirement to all businesses that make solicitation calls to their existing customers who have chosen to be on the “do not call” list/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.
