A bill that would create a no-spam list along the lines of Missouri’s no-call list has advanced in the House, though questions have arisen over whether changes made during floor debate make it unconstitutional. Representative David Pearce of Warrensburg sponsors the bill that had a strong provision against e-mail solicitations of child pornography. An amendment added to the bill stripped the word “child” creating a question of whether the bill would now stand constitutional muster. A spokesman for the Attorney General’s office says the office will review the new language to determine the effect it will have on the bill. The bill would allow Missourians to join a list placing them off-limits to unsolicited e-mails. It allows exceptions, such as for businesses licensed by the state. Such e-mails though would be required to declare they are solicitations.
