South Carolina Bill Overlaps with Federal Caller Identification Requirements

Commentary

A bill has been proposed in the South Carolina General Assembly (SB 1004) which would require telephone solicitors to display accurate caller identification including name, telephone number, and client name.  The telephone number must permit a caller to add his or her name to “do-not-call” lists during normal business hours. 

Comment: This bill largely mirrors federal caller identification requirements, but is slightly more restrictive with regard to disclosure of client name.  I also do not know if it is possible given the character limitation to disclose that much information in caller identification projection.
