Cell Phones To Be Added to Missouri "No Call" List Under Bill Sent to Governor


The Missouri Senate yesterday unanimously passed a bill that would allow residents to add their cell phones to the state's "No Call" list that bars solicitors from calling or texting who don't want contact from vendors.

In April the Missouri House passed House Bill 1549 in similar fashion with a 147-0 vote. The bill now awaits signature from Governor Jay Nixon who spearheaded the "No Call" list for landlines when he served as attorney general.
