Pass robo-call restrictions

Good for Attorney General Steve Six for continuing to push for restrictions on robo-calls, those automated phone calls that politicians and special interest groups make to citizens — often repeatedly throughout the day. "Although we are still nine months away from election day, my office is already receiving complaints regarding political robo-calls," Six wrote last week. Legislation that Six recommended also would apply to companies but would allow exemptions for schools and organizations that already have relationships with the recipient of the call.
