NY Gov. Cuomo Signs Legislation Cracking Down on Telemarketing

A Bill meant to Crack Down on Telemarketing Calls was Approved on Monday by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. It takes effect in 90 days.

The Measure is meant to Strengthen the 18-year-old Do Not Call Law by Closing what Supporters say is a Loophole in the Legislation.

The New Law requires Live Telemarketers to give Consumers the Option of being Added to the Seller’s Restricted Call List.

The Bill also requires Telemarketers to have a Consumer’s Written Consent before Sharing or Selling their Contact Information.

“This loophole is a license to annoy New Yorkers that telemarketers have taken advantage of for far too long,” Cuomo said in a Statement. “With these new protections, we can help ensure New Yorkers receive fewer unwanted calls and their privacy is protected once and for all.”

The Measure was Sponsored by Assemblywoman Amy Paulin (D-88th District) and Sen. Todd Kaminsky (D-9th District).

“People live busy lives, and the last thing that they need to deal with are disruptive calls from telemarketers,” Kaminsky said. “Over the last few years, the amount of nuisance calls has increased drastically, and this bill would curb these bothersome calls. I am thankful to work with Assemblywoman Amy Paulin on this legislation and thank Governor Cuomo for signing it into law.”
