On Saturday, March 7, New York governor Andrew Cuomo declared a state of emergency due to the spread of the coronavirus in the state.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed a bill into law on Monday that places new restrictions on telemarketers calling residents of that state. The Nuisance Call Act is designed to close loopholes in the state’s existing telemarketing legislation, which was originally passed in 2001.
As we previously noted, the Pennsylvania state legislature passed a bill enacting new restrictions on robocalls. Now governor Tom Wolf has signed that bill into law.
The Pennsylvania state legislature passed a new bill, HR-318, that introduces a number of new restrictions for robocalls. The most notable is that it now extends the state-level Do Not Call List protections in perpetuity. Previously, those protections only lasted for five years unless renewed.
