If you were worried about your phone number being up for grabs by telemarketers after the looming five-year anniversary date of the Do-Not-Call list, the House of Representatives, er, has your number (pardon the pun). They just approved a permanent extension (HR 3541). In its original version, numbers added to the list were intended to age off after five years to allow for people who move and switch numbers. The Senate version (S 2096) is still waiting for a floor vote. Thanks to the CDT for the update.
