CHAIR PASKVAN announced HB 93 to be up for consideration.                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
TOM WRIGHT,  staff to Representative  Chenault, sponsor of  HB 93,                                                              
said this adds  mobile telephones to the definition  of "telephone                                                              
solicitation"  in  AS  45.54.075(g).  This adds  cell  and  mobile                                                              
phones to the  unlawful and unwanted telephone  advertisements and                                                              
solicitations section.  There is a  national do not  call registry                                                              
operated  by  the  Federal  Trade   Commission  since  2003;  this                                                              
service allows  a consumer  to register  their telephone,  cell or                                                              
mobile  phones  to  that  list should  a  consume  wish  to  limit                                                              
telemarketing  calls.  This  bill  makes  statute  compliant  with                                                              
federal law.  At this  time cell phone  numbers are  not available                                                              
to the public, but  several services, mostly in the  Lower 48, are                                                              
putting a  directory together for their  own use. So the  state is                                                              
trying to be proactive if that directory ever becomes public.                                                                   
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR THOMAS  asked if he  could put his  home phone as  well as                                                              
his cell phone on this registry.
