In a speech on the floor of the House of Representatives, Congressman Mike Doyle (D-PA) thanked The Consumerist for supporting H.R. 3541, The Do Not Call Improvement Act.
The common-sense measure will make Do Not Call List registrations permanent, preventing them from expiring after five years. Without Congressman Doyle’s bill, 50 million numbers could fall from the list in 2008. The House has already passed the measure, and Senators are expected to give their assent when they return from a holiday recess free from the interruptions of telemarketers.
Consumerist is the first Gawker blog to appear in the Congressional Record.
