SB 548 - This act modifies the regulation of telemarketers. Section 407.1095, RSMo, currently defines terms relating to telemarketing. The term "telephone solicitation" is revised by removing the following exemptions:

- Business relationships within the past 180 days; - Entities regulated by federal agencies; and - Referrals, professionals setting up appointments, or other calls from persons working out of the home.

This act is identical to HB 511 and contains an emergency clause.
