Brewer Signs Bill Banning Unsolicited Text Messages

TextArizona Governor Jan Brewer has signed a bill banning marketers from sending unsolicited text messages to cellphones.

The bill Brewer signed Thursday was sponsored by Republican Representative Eddie Farnsworth of Gilbert and targets marketers that flood recipients' phones with offers. That forces phone users to essentially pay to receive ads. 

The bill passed the Senate Wednesday on a 27-to-zero vote. The House also passed the bill unanimously in a vote last month.
