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)
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.

the effects of such an expanded ban would have on their businesses.
