Comments:I find telemarketing offensive and NEVER buy anything from calls. What I find even more offensive than telemarketing calls are hang-ups and pre-recorded messages that do not give a consumer a chance to say 'Remove this number from your calling list and DO NOT call again'. This provision would allow many more 'hang-up' calls and recorded message calls. The standard of 3% needs to be lowered to 1.5 or 2%, not raised and not per 30 day period. The standard also needs to remain per day per calling campaign.
