PIA Members Must Be Aware of State Regulations

While there has been much attention given to the new Federal "Do Not Call" laws and registry lately, it is important to remember that many states already have similar laws or will be implementing similar laws soon.

The two tables below will help you determine what's going on in your state.

What Does It Mean If Your State Is Not Listed in Table #1 or Table #2?

If your state is not listed in either of the two tables listed below, then it means that your state does not have a Do Not Call law and by default will be adopting the rules pertaining to the National Do Not Call Registry.

However, if your state's name does not appear, it does not mean that your state is not developing a No Call law or will never develop a No Call law. So, it is important to keep abreast of any changes that may occur within your state regarding its No Call laws.

Description of Table #1

Table #1 lists those states that have Do Not Call laws and have chosen, as of August 21, 2003, to NOT share the names of those registered on the state No Call list with the National Do Not Call Registry. However, this could change and these states may choose to adopt the National Do Not Call Registry.

Description of Table #2

Table #2 lists those states that have Do Not Call laws and have adopted the National Do Not Call Registry as the state Do Not Call registry. However, simply because these states have adopted the National registry as their state registry does not mean they have adopted the federal rules pertaining to No Call. Rather, these states may still chose to enforce other aspects of their own state No Call rules.

Could the Information in these Tables Change?

Yes! It is important to note, that due to rapid manner in which the No Call issue is evolving, this list is subject to change and it is best to also check with your PIA state affiliate to be sure of the current status your state's No Call law and the National No Call Registry.
