15 Mar: Sarlo Bill To Limit Fax ‘Spam’ Receives Final Legislative Approval

TRENTON – A measure sponsored by Senator Paul A. Sarlo that would require companies to permit fax recipients to “opt-out” of receiving unsolicited faxes was unanimously approved today in the Senate.

“Unwanted and unsolicited faxes are a nuisance, that waste money,” said Senator Sarlo, D-Bergen, Essex and Passaic. “By allowing businesses the choice of ‘opting-out’ they would be able to put their profits to better use.”
