Senator Tom Harkin is cosponsoring a bill that would let the “Do Not Call” list go into effect. A federal judge yesterday ruled the Federal Communications Commission had overstepped its authority in establishing the list. About half a MILLION Iowans have put their phone numbers on the list to block telephone solicitations. Harkin says the bill would give the F-C-C authority to proceed with the “Do Not Call” list.Harkin says 50 million Americans put their phone numbers on the list, and Harkin says Congress needs to make sure consumers have the power to stop unwanted calls from telemarketers. Harkin says one way or another, they’ll try to get the issue resolved by October 1st — the date the list was supposed to go into effect. The House and Senate are scheduled to vote on the bill sometime today.
