Tauzin Reverses Stance On Do-Not-Call List
from the public-pressure dept
I guess Billy Tauzin doesn’t want to be labeled as the guy who let the telemarketers keep calling. As powerful as the telemarketing lobby can be (I’m sure they call your house every night at dinner time), the hatred that voters feel for telemarketers seems to have swayed Tauzin. Just yesterday he was going to block funding for a national do not call list. And, now, he’s miraculously changed his mind. He still wants the funds to be limited, and he wants to review how things are going a few years down the road, but he’s no longer going to make sure that no list shows up for at least another year.
