Sound Off

What did the Kansas Legislature do this year about telephone solicitation?

The House and Senate approved versions of a law that would create a "no-call" list, and a conference committee of both chambers will try to negotiate differences between the proposals when the overtime session starts May 1.

Both proposals would allow Kansans to place themselves on the no-call list, which would be maintained by the industry group Direct Marketers Assn.

The House proposal would allow the Attorney General's Office to contract with the DMA and require telemarketers to purchase the list. The Senate approved an telemarketing industry-backed plan, which would keep the DMA in control of the no-call list.
