Missouri Legislators Consider Do Not Call for Cellphones

Senate endorses bill to include cellphones to state's do-not-call list.

For years, Florissant residents as well as others across the state have signed up in the past for the Missouri Do Not Call Registry for their landlines. Now, Missouri legislators are considering extending the same process to cellphones.

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, both the state House and Senate have legislation to add cellphones to the Missouri’s do not call list.

The legislation would allow for residents to opt in to protecting their cellphones from receiving calls, text messages and faxes from telemarketers.

Would you support a bill like this?

Up until about a week ago, I had never had issue with this. All of the sudden, I'm getting calls about 8 times a day (most hangups, but when are linked to telemarketers). I'd rather ditch my phone.
