this is looking kind of off topic, but...

most of those extemptions existed because the industries in question were
being regulated by a different commission.

said commission had the authority to buy into the do not call list. they
have done so, and so the extemptions have mostly gone away. i think
politicians can still pester you for money at dinner time, though.
