Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy signed a law on Thursday that makes it illegal for marketing companies to send unsolicited text messages to cell phones. The law allows Connecticut residents to specify they don't want to receive messages via the Do Not Call registry. Connecticut lawmakers said the law was put in place in response to consumer complaints about being charged to receive unwanted marketing messages. The law also raises the fines for violations from $11,000 to $20,000, and requires wireless and wireline phone companies to inform consumers twice per year about how to add their number to the Do Not Call registry.
