INTRODUCED

HB 1430 -- Consumer Telephone Privacy Act

Sponsor:  Schwab

This bill requires the Attorney General to establish and
maintain a statewide database of telephone numbers of consumers
who object to receiving telephone solicitations.  The Attorney
General will:

(1)  Specify methods by which database information will be
added, removed, and accessed;

(2)  Determine an initial listing charge not to exceed $10 and
an annual renewal listing charge not to exceed $5;

(3)  Specify methods for recovering costs involved in
maintaining the database; and

(4)  Specify the frequency with which the database will be
updated and how compliance will be ensured, allowing at least 10
calendar days for affected persons to update their databases.

It is an unlawful merchandising practice to make telephone
solicitations to consumers included in the database and to make
telephone solicitations without first accessing the then current
database.  Current law makes unlawful merchandising practices a
class D felony.

The bill creates the Telemarketing Database Fund in the state
treasury to be used to defray the cost associated with creating
and maintaining the database and enforcement of the bill's
provisions.
