Telephone billing practices. Exempts a telephone company from existing requirements regarding authorization and verification for products, goods, and services billed on a telephone bill if the telephone company bills its customers pursuant to an executed contract. The measure also provides that a telephone company may bill its customers for charges for a third party's products, goods, and services if, in addition to the current condition that the third party be required to obtain the customer's verification of the customer's authorization, the telephone company notifies its customers whether or not free blocking of certain third-party vendor billing is available.
