Jones measure would create ‘do not call list’ specifically for robo calls
LANSING—Families would be able to say no to political robo calls under legislation soon to be introduced in the Michigan Senate, said sponsor state Sen. Rick Jones.
Senate Bill 1228 would create a “do not call list” for automated telephone calls from politicians.
“Robo calls are disruptive, and they always seem to come at dinnertime or in the middle of a ball game” said Jones, R-Grand Ledge. “If a candidate or volunteer wants to contact a voter directly, this measure will not prevent them from doing so. This legislation simply gives citizens a choice whether or not they want to receive automated phone calls.”
