The Local Search Association and several of our member publishers are partnering with Illinois State Rep. Bill Cunningham to spread awareness among Illinois residents and businesses about the ability to easily control the delivery of Yellow Pages directories at www.YellowPagesOptOut.com.
In a press release distributed yesterday throughout Illinois, Rep. Cunningham said, “I’m encouraged that Yellow Pages publishers have developed a practical way for Illinois residents and businesses to limit or stop phone book delivery at www.YellowPagesOptOut.com. I look forward to helping Yellow Pages publishers raise visibility for this important resource that provides choice to Illinois constituents.”
Rep. Cunningham is partnering with publishers including Dex One, hibu, The Berry Company and SuperMedia to drive awareness of www.YellowPagesOptOut.com with Illinois elected officials, community organizations and the public.
Over the past year, LSA and our members been partnered with state and local municipalities across the country to address concerns about directory delivery and raise awareness for our successful consumer choice initiative at www.YellowPagesOptOut.com.
