Bush Signs 'Do Not Call" List Bill
President Bush, today, has signed into law a bill that will create a national "do not call" list allowing consumers to block themselves from telemarketers. This is a HUGE win for consumers and a HUGE loss for telemarketers.
The program will go into effect this Summer.
The Direct Marketing Association has already filed a lawsuit stating the law unlawfully restricts free speech.
Telemarketers will be fined $11,000 for each person they call if they are on the list.
Telemarketing has changed forever.
