Thomas F. O'mara's posts related to Consumer Protection

Anti-telemarketer legislation signed into law

Albany, N.Y., August 17—State Senator Tom O’Mara (R-C, Big Flats) today applauded Governor Andrew Cuomo’s signing of a new law to implement stronger protections for New Yorkers from intrusive or unwanted telemarketing practices.

O’Mara strongly supported and voted in favor of the legislation (S7567), which was given final legislative approval by the Senate in mid-June.  The new law will regulate all telemarketers who do business in New York, wherever they may be located, and add new consumer protections from unwelcome prerecorded calls, known as robocalls, from telemarketers.
