Granholm: Do Not Call list sign up under way

By Staff
LANSING -- Michigan Governor Jennifer M. Granholm today announced that Michigan residents may now sign up for the national Do Not Call list that will reduce the number of telemarketing calls people get at home. Signing up for the list is free.
Governor Granholm said people may sign up for the national Do Not Call list on the Federal Trade Commission's Web site: www.ftc.gov/donotcall. Beginning July 7, 2003, telephone registration for the list will also be available to people in Michigan by calling the national Do Not Call hotline at 1-888-382-1222. For people without Internet service at their home or workplace, they may access the FTC web site at any public library in Michigan for free. Telemarketers will have access to the national registry beginning in September.
The Michigan Public Service Commission, an agency within the Michigan Department of Consumer &Industry Services (CIS), designated the national Do Not Call list as Michigan's list in April. "Michigan consumers benefit by being protected against both intrastate and interstate telephone solicitations with just one convenient registration," said CIS Director David C. Hollister. "In addition, by establishing the federal list as the Michigan list, the Public Service Commission is promoting government efficiency by avoiding unnecessary duplication of resources."
To keep Michigan residents informed about the national Do Not Call list, the State of Michigan has created a Web site: www.michigan.gov/donotcall.
