Gov. Wolf signs new restrictions on robocalls in Pennsylvania

Getting tired of “Scam Likely” interrupting your tranquility? The state just handed you a break.

On Friday, Gov. Tom Wolf signed a new law that scraps language requiring people who want to stay on the state’s do-not-call list to re-up their registration every five years. Now you’re one and done.

The bill the Democratic governor signed into law updates the state’s Telemarketer Registration Act to allow business customers to sign up for the registry, the Associated Press reports.

1. Do-Not-Call List - do robodialers honor this?

I don't believe they even care about do not call lists. Robodialers are mostly calling from out of state anyway, maybe even from outside the USA. It's the phone companies like Verizon that have gotten us into this mess by not stopping it when it started so many years ago.
