TRENTON ‚Äď Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Nancy Pinkin, Wayne DeAngelo and Timothy Eustace to prohibit unsolicited telemarketing sales calls to commercial mobile service devices was given final legislative approval in the Assembly on Monday, 76-0.
Currently, the national ‚Äúno call list‚ÄĚ law prohibits all telemarketing sales calls from being made to cell phones, except that a cell phone service provider may call its own customers.
‚ÄúThe statewide ‚Äúno call list‚ÄĚ has helped to end intrusive telemarketing calls to New Jersey homes,‚ÄĚ said Pinkin (D-Middlesex). ‚ÄúThe law must be expanded to stop telemarketing companies from now targeting residents‚Äô cell phones.‚ÄĚ
