New Jersey Assemblyman David W. Wolfe (R) reintroduced A.B. 369 (A.B. 1305 in the 2010-2011 session), which would add “polling done by or on behalf of a candidate for public office or a political organization” to the state's definition of “telemarketing.”
This legislation would make many political polling calls subject to the state do not call registry and other telemarketing restrictions, so MRA will seek to amend or defeat A.B. 1305 to protect the research profession.
