Do Not Call Re-registration May not be Necessary After all

When I first heard that registrations on the national Do Not Call list is about to expire late last month (every entry is good for only five years), I didn’t waste any time to renew my registration because I want to continue to enjoy a quiet dinner time.

Well, it seems that a re-registration may not be necessary after all.

Yesterday, in testimony before the U.S. House of Representatives’ Subcommittee on Commerce, Trade, and Consumer Protection, Lydia Parnes, Director of Bureau of Consumer Protection, said that

the Commission now commits that it will not drop any telephone numbers from the Registry based on the five-year expiration period pending final Congressional or agency action on whether to make registration permanent.

Though it is up to Congress whether to make the registration permanent, it is unimaginable that such a popular measure will be let expire. However, if you are concerned about your registration and don’t want to wait for the legislation, you can go to National Do Not Call Registry or www.donotcall.gov to renew it. It only takes a couple of minute to complete.
