Statement from Speaker Silver In Support of
Telemarketing Restrictions

The scourge of unsolicited and unwelcome telemarketing calls in New York State will soon be greatly diminished thanks to this welcome measure. I am pleased to know tough new restrictions on the delivery of prerecorded sales messages and broadened registration requirements for telemarketing companies will help stem the tide of these aggressive solicitations. I join with my colleagues in the Assembly and Senate, the Governor, and countless consumers across the Empire State in hailing this measure.
