New Yorkers can now be added to live telemarketers’ do-not-call list

Local News

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed legislation requiring live telemarketers to give consumers the option to be added to the seller’s do-not-call list.

It also requires telemarketers to have a consumer’s written consent before sharing or selling their contact information.

In 2001, the Do Not Call Law took effect, allowing New Yorkers to opt-out of receiving pre-recorded or “robocalls.”

The legislation takes effect in 90 days.
