Statement of FTC Chairman Deborah Platt Majoras on Congressional Passage of Legislation Regarding the National Do Not Call Registry

For Release

“Congress has taken important steps reaffirming the continued success of the extremely popular Do Not Call program by passing legislation that permanently reauthorizes the Do Not Call Registry and eliminates the need for consumers to re-register their telephone numbers. The Commission is committed to protecting consumers from unwanted telemarketer calls, and the legislation announced today will enable us to continue to do it efficiently.”
