(Springfield, IL) — February 10, 2010. Sick of jumping up from the dinner table to answer political candidates’ automated telephone calls around election day?
State Senators Dale Righter (R-Mattoon) and Chris Lauzen (R-Aurora) have answered your call.
Righter and Lauzen introduced legislation, Senate Bill 3135, on Monday that would prohibit political “robo” calls to individuals who have registered their telephone number or numbers on the Restricted Call (“Do Not Call”) Registry.
Call it the pesky political calls be-gone bill.
If approved by the Illinois General Assembly, the bill would take effect in time for the November 2010 general election.
