reported January 18, 2008.]


A BILL to amend and reenact §46A-6F-113 of the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, relating to definition of "telemarketing solicitation".

Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:
That §46A-6F-113 of the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, be amended and reenacted to read as follows:
§46A-6F-113. Telemarketer.
(a) "Telemarketer" means any person who initiates or receives telephone calls to or from a consumer in this state for the purpose of making a telemarketing solicitation as defined in section one hundred thirteen twelve of this article.
(b) A telemarketer may initiate or receive a communication that constitutes a telemarketing solicitation on his own behalf, through a salesperson or through an automated dialing machine.
(c) A telemarketer does not include any of the persons or entities exempted pursuant to part II of this article.
(d) A telemarketer does not include a salesperson as defined in section one hundred fourteen of this article.
(e) A telemarketer includes, but is not limited to, owners, operators, officers, directors, partners or other individuals engaged in the management activities of a business entity that is subject to licensing and registration pursuant to this article.

(NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to correct an inaccurate statutory reference in §46A-6F-113. The section references the term "telemarketing solicitation" and states that the definition is set forth in §46A-6F-113 rather than §46A-6F-112, where the term is actually defined.

Strike-throughs indicate language that would be stricken from the present law, and underscoring indicates new language that would be added.)
