Senators hear debate on fines for violations of do-not-call list
The lawmaker who first proposed Wisconsin's do-not-call list says the $100 fine for violators is nothing to a large telemarketing firm.
And that's why Sen. Jon Erpenbach of D-Waunakee wants to raise the penalty to at least $1,000, and up to $10,000 for the worst violators.
A Senate committee held a public hearing on his bill Wednesday.
Erpenbach said it would send a message that violators would have a "pretty stiff price to pay."
