The governor has signed a bill into law requiring companies and others who make so-called robo calls to keep a record of the calls made.
The new law signed was signed yesterday and also requires the callers to keep track of the calls they claim are exempt from do-not-call registries.
The governor’s office says the new law increases consumer protections already provided in existing laws against such calls.
The legislation was sponsored by state Sen. Pamela Althoff and takes effect immediately.
