People frustrated by text messaging ads might soon have an answer to their problem. Pennsylvania State Representative Seth Grove (R-Dover) introduced legislation amending the Telemarketer Registration Act to include text messages.
Rep. Grove says the idea for the amendment came from his constituents. “I had a couple senior citizens come into the office. And they started getting text messaging advertisements and they didn’t have a text messaging plan so it cost them money to receive em. And then, it usually says ‘reply back STOP to stop the text messaging’ and to stop it it cost them even more money.
