Online Registration for Idaho's No Call List Resumes
(Boise) -Idaho's No Call List registration has resumed today, Attorney General Lawrence Wasden said. A decision announced by Attorney General Wasden to discontinue charging Idahoans to register for Idaho's No Call List required the office to temporarily suspend online registration.
"The No Call List registration is back online today and available to Idahoans," Attorney General Wasden said. Idahoans who wish to have their names included on Idaho's No Call List can access the form via the Attorney General's website.
Wasden said that, under federal rules, Idahoans who register for the federal no call list will automatically be added to the Attorney General's No Call List. However, state privacy laws prohibit his office from transferring registration information to the federal government. As a result, Idahoans on the state list who also want to be on the federal list must register for the federal list. Idahoans may also link to the federal no call list via the Attorney General's website.
The Attorney General said he would ask the legislature next winter to decide if Idaho should provide registration data to the federal government. If the legislature approves, Idaho residents who register for either the state or federal list would have their phone numbers included on both lists.
