Missouri cellphone users can now register their numbers on the state’s no-call list under a bill signed by Governor Jay Nixon Thursday.
The law prohibits telemarketers from calling or texting those who sign up and gives the attorney general’s office the power to punish violators.
Attorney General Chris Koster says the law expands Missouri’s no-call list enacted 12 years ago for land lines.
“12 years ago the no-call list saved the dinner hour in this state," Koster said. "Today’s action extends that protection to a new technological era.”
Governor Jay Nixon signed a bill into law today that calls for more uniformity among higher education institutions in Missouri.
