Comments:Prerecorded Message EBR, Telemarketing Project No. R411001 Allowing telemarketers to increase the volume of prerecorded calls as a marketing tool is a bad idea. It will largely undercut the effectiveness of the do not call ist concept. Further allowing the telemarketers to "amend the TSR’s call abandonment safe harbor provision that currently requires use of "technology that ensures abandonment of no more than three (3) percent of all calls answered by a person, "measured per day per calling campaign" substituting the phrase "measured over a 30-day period." is also a bad idea. Do not agree to the telemarketing Associations proposed changes.
