Telemarketing Registry. On October 12, 2000, Governor Pataki signed the "Do Not Call" telemarketing registry bill into law, effective April 1, 2001. To remove your name from the lists via computer, type in www.consumer.state.ny.us and a screen will appear for you to complete. If you don't have a computer, call (800) 697-1220.

Once your name appears on the "Do Not Call" registry, telemarketers have thirty days to remove your name from their call list. Telemarketers who violate the law could be subject to a fine of up to $2,000 per call.

Stronger No-Smoking Ban under Consideration. City Councilman Peter Vallone has proposed a new bill that will expand the 1995 Smoke-Free Air Act by banning smoking in all parts of a restaurant, including all bars located inside restaurants. TBA is surveying restaurant owners in our neighborhood to determine what they think the effects of such an expanded ban would have on their businesses.
