Comments:I urge the Commission NOT to modify the regulations that would allow prerecorded messages to reach those with whom the seller on whose behalf the calls are made has an established business relationship. MOreover, I urge the Commission NOT to amend the TSR’s call abandonment safe harbor provision that currently requires use of "technology that ensures abandonment of no more than three (3) percent of all calls answered by a person, "measured per day per calling campaign" substituting the phrase "measured over a 30-day period."
