Senate Would Add Texting To ‘Do Not Call’ List

TALLAHASEE (CBSMiami/NSF) – For those constantly nagged by unsolicited text messages, Florida’s Senate may soon have a solution.

The “Do Not Call” list is a program designed to prevent Floridians from receiving unwanted calls from salespeople.

On Friday, senators voted unanimously Friday to add text messages to the “Do Not Call” program.

Under the current program, solicitors are barred from making telephone sales calls to people how have registered for the program.

The Senate approved a bill (SB 450), filed by Sen. Jeff Clemens, D-Lake Worth. The House version (HB1191), filed by Rep. Janet Cruz, D-Tampa, is ready to go to the full House.
