I’m catching up with a lot of stuff that happened today.
One of them was House passage of House Bill 2479, sponsored by Rep. Dawn Morrell, D-Puyallup. The bill prohibits anyone from publishing a private cell phone number in a commercial telephone directory without the express permission of the cell phone customer.
It passed 92-3 and now goes to the Senate.
I don’t own a cell phone, but I understand those of you who do don’t like unsolicited callers using up your minutes. State law already imposes fines up to $50,000 on wireless companies if they publish cell phone numbers or give them publishing companies without permission.
