New York, NY (WIBX) – New York Senator Charles Schumer is introducing legislation that toughens the penalties for telemarketers violating the “Do Not Call list”.

Schumer says the Federal Trade Commission has received a rise in complaints of unwanted telemarketers.

Schumer’s legislation would bring penalties from a misdemeanor to a felony.

He says technology allows one person to make millions of pre-recorded calls with the click of a mouse.
