Comments:Re: Prerecorded message EBR Telmarketing Project No. R411001 I am in opposition of the proposed amendment of the Telemarketing Sales Rule to create an additional call abandonment safe harbor to allow prerecorded telemarketing calls that deliver a prerecorded message to consumers with whom the seller on whose behalf the calls are made has established a business relationship. In addition, I oppose the petition submitted by the Direct Marketing Association to amend the TSR's call abandonment provision that currently requires use of "technology that ensures abandonment of no moe than three (3) percent of all calls answered by a person, 'measured per day per calling campaign' and substituting the phrase 'measured over a 30-day period'".
