§844.11.  Legislative findings

Because the legislature recognizes that becoming a residential telephonic subscriber should not undermine or lessen a person's right of privacy, it finds that there is a compelling state interest to protect the privacy of such subscribers who wish to avoid unsolicited and unwanted telephonic solicitations by enacting the "Telephone Solicitation Relief Act of 2001".  The legislature also recognizes that the federal government has created a National Do Not Call Registry and enacted rules and regulations pertaining to unwanted telephonic solicitations, which rules and regulations preempt any less restrictive state law.  The legislature recognizes that it can be confusing and cumbersome for citizens intending to register for a state and national "do not call" list as well as businesses desiring to make telephonic solicitations in and to residents of the state of Louisiana for there to exist separate state and national lists.  Therefore, the legislature finds that adoption of the National Do Not Call Registry combined with the state "do not call" listing will better protect residential telephonic subscribers from unsolicited and unwanted telephonic solicitations and make it easier and less complex for telephonic solicitors to comply with all applicable rules and regulations.

Acts 2001, No. 40, §1, eff. May 24, 2001; Acts 2004, No. 857, §1, eff. July 12, 2004.
