MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin legislators are considering transferring management of the state's popular do-not-call list to the Federal Trade Commission.
The list contains 2.3 million phone numbers that are blocked from telemarketing calls. A state Assembly bill scheduled for a public hearing Tuesday would transfer the numbers to the FTC's national do-not-call list. While the state's registry is good for two years, the federal list is permanent.
The bill's author, Rep. Keith Ripp, of Lodi, tells the Journal Sentinel it would make it less confusing for people who don't remember to renew their registration on the state list.
