(AP) - Legislation allowing Missourians to place their cellphone numbers on the state's telemarketing No Call List is moving forward. The House voted 147-0 Thursday for the bill allowing the addition of cellphones to the list, which would put them off-limits to most solicitations by phone call or text message.
Sponsoring House member Todd Richardson, a Republican form Poplar Bluff, says expanding the registry would protect the privacy of Missourians. The legislation moves to the Senate, which has already endorsed a similar bill.
The Missouri attorney general's office maintains the No Call List. That office reports getting 150 to 200 calls a week from people complaining about telemarketing calls to cellphones or seeking to add the numbers to the No Call List.
