In addition to making it easier for consumers to be removed from mass e-mail lists, the bill would enable Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to bring action to keep unlawful spam from their networks.

State Attorneys General would be given the ability to bring suit on behalf of citizens who have been victimized by unscrupulous marketers.
