This article reports on the threat by the U.S. government to veto a bill on the use of facsimiles and automatic telephone dialing machines for unsolicited sales promotions. The Telephone Advertising Regulation Act of 1989 was approved by the House of Representatives earlier in August 1992. The measure would establish a list of those who object to receiving so-called junk fax and telephone solicitations. Advertisers would be required to pay to buy the list and would be prohibited from sending their promotions via fax to those names.
