Calls from telemarketers can be annoying and can come at the worst times. But as of now, if your name is on the state's list you can still receive solicitation calls.
David Adkins, Republican from Johnson County says if you have an existing relationship with a firm you can still receive calls from those firms. You can also receive calls from charitiable organizations, and because of the first amendment political solicitation calls can also come through.
Adkins also says if you sign up today, your names will not be known to telelmarketers until fall. That is because the Attorney General has to hire a company to compile and maintain the official No Call list. And until a Company is hired, Adkins says No Call law will be difficult if not impossible to enforce.
So in the mean time he suggests just politely tell the telemarketers yourself you would like to be on their No Call list until the state's official list is ready.
Some other laws taking effect have smokers paying an extra $0.46 per pack for their cigarettes. At the pump we are now paying an extra 2 cents for gasoline and diesel, and the state sales tax is now 5.3 percent, which is up from 4.9 percent
