The U.S. House of Representatives voted on Tuesday to make "Do Not Call" registration permanent, meaning that consumers will not need to renew their participation every five years, as was originally mandated by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). The "Do Not Call" registry allows Americans to choose whether or not they want to receive telemarketing calls. Once a phone number is added to the registry, after 31 days most telemarketing calls will stop. Both residential and cellular phone numbers can be added to the "Do Not Call" registry.
