Jackson will try to stop unwanted phone books
Question of the Day
JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - The Jackson Town Council wants to try to stop the delivery of unwanted phone books.
Councilors voted 3-0 Tuesday to draft a new law aimed at cutting down deliveries made without people’s consent. They also agreed to meet with representatives of phone book companies to discuss other solutions.
The Jackson Hole Daily (http://bit.ly/1knvICI ) reported that the details of how the possible new law would work haven’t been determined. It could require companies to pick up unused phone books.
The council began talking about the issue in December.
Other communities have tried to tax or ban unwanted phone books. A law passed in Seattle was overturned by a circuit court that found the books are non-commercial speech protected by the First Amendment.
