Do Not Call Improvement Act

Identical versions of the Do Not Call Improvement Act have passed both the House (H.R. 3541) and Senate (S. 2096). The Act eliminates the need for consumers to re-register their numbers on the Do Not Call registry. When the Do Not Call program was first established in 2003, consumers could list their phone numbers for a five-year period after which they were required to re-register. In October, the FTC suspended the deletion of expired numbers pending Congressional action.
