JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri lawmakers could add cellphones to the state's No Call List that restricts telemarketing.
A Senate committee has endorsed legislation that would allow people to add their cellphones to the No Call List. It would ban phone calls, text messages or faxes. Similar legislation also has been filed in the state House.
Lawmakers have debated expanding the No Call List in recent years. Supporters of allowing cellphones to be added to the list say the changes are needed to account for new technology. They said solicitations through people's cellphones are unwanted and cost Missouri residents money.
