The Governor of Louisiana has declared a state of emergency as Hurricane Harvey is anticipated to cause significant rainfall and flooding. Under Louisiana law, telephonic solicitations are prohibited during a state of emergency. This prohibition will extend through September 22, 2017, unless terminated sooner. We encourage all of our telemarketing clients respect this law and cease making telemarketing calls into the state until further notice. Also, while not legally required, telemarketers should avoid calling Texas while their residents are struggling with the flooding which already occurred in that state.
