TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Attorney General Derek Schmidt is proposing legislators expand the Kansas no-call registry to cover mobile devices to protect consumers from unwanted calls.

Schmidt announced the plan Wednesday with legislators, telecommunication providers and Kansas AARP.

The registry currently allows residents to list their numbers with the attorney general' office if they wish not to be bothered by telemarketing calls. Federal law allows for any telephone number to be listed on a national database, but Schmidt and others aren't certain if the Kansas law specifically allows for mobile numbers to be added to protect privacy.

The proposed bill would be narrowly drafted to clarify that mobile devices are covered by the act.

Violations of the act are enforced by the attorney general's office.
