Legislative Memo

BILL:

A.3191 (Pheffer)

Support

SUBJECT:

Unsolicited Advertisements

 

DATE:

February 23, 2009

 

The Business Council opposes this bill which would require senders of direct mail advertisements to inform recipients of the right to decline further mailings.  The Business Council believes this legislation is unnecessary and unworkable for several reasons and recommends against its adoption.

The Business Council recognizes the desire of individuals to lessen the amount of paper in their mailboxes. However, we do not believe that the provisions of A.3191 are necessary or prudent to accomplish this.
For these reasons, The Business Council respectfully recommends against adoption of A.3191.
