Wednesday is next deadline for Wis. no-call list


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The next deadline to register for Wisconsin's no-call list to block calls from telemarketers is Wednesday.

Those who sign up through that day will have their phone numbers put on the list starting Oct.1.

The list is open to home and cell numbers, but registration must be renewed every two years.

Anyone who has forgotten when they signed up can sign up again to be safe. More than 2.3 million numbers are on the list.

More than half of the numbers registered in the previous registration were cell numbers.

Sign up over the Internet or by calling 1-866-966-2255 or. Telemarketers who violate the state law face a $100 fine per call.
