QUALITY CLOCK REPAIR Antique Mantle 400 Day Anniversary Striking * Chiming CRAIG RANDLEMAN ORTONWILLE, MN 320-839-2357 Minnesota Cerl Clock,maker - Watchmaker Call After 6 p.m. for Estimates Peterson backs telemarketing consumer protection bill Rep. Doug Peterson Thursday voted for a landmark telemarketing reform bill that will shield consumers especially senior citizens from annoying and unscrupulous telephone solicitation calls. "Passage of this bill will help restore a little domestic peace to the family dinner hour," Peterson, who co-authored the bill, said. "But phone sales calls aren't just an annoyance. Many telemarketcrs use deceptive sales practices and some are outright frauds. This bill, which had the strong support of the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) lets peo- ple block those calls." The bill establishes a "Do Not Call" list, managed by the Minnesota Department of Commerce, for citi- zens who don't want to receive sales calls. Telcmarketing firms would be required to abide by the list, and if they break the rule they could be fined up to $1,000 per illegal call. Companies that repeatedly and exces- sively violate the rule could be banned from doing business in the state. Costs would be partially covered by a fee on the telemarketing firms. Local tele- phone companies will provide their customers with information on how to get their names on the "Do Not Call" list. The bill passed with an over- whelming bi-partisan majority - 126 to 8 - in the Minnesota House of Representatives, Peterson noted. "I was disappointed to see a num- ber of rural Republican legislators, including Rep. Richard Mulder of Ivanhoe, oppose this bill," Peterson said. "Many senior citizens have been victimized by telemarketing fraud. Twenty-six states already have do- not-call lists. This protects our people. I don't understand why a rural legisla- tor would oppose it." People who feel they have been defrauded by telemarketers can con- tact Minnesota Attorney General Mike Hatch, Consumer Protection Division, toll-free at 1-8(X)-657-3787 or in writing at Consumer Protection, 1400 NCL Tower, 445 Minnesota St., St. Paul, MN 55101.
