The Connecticut Legislature might outlaw automated-message calls.

Robocalls, often deployed by political campaigns, could be history if a bill working its way through the Legislature is passed. However, the firms that call thousands of homes and play recorded messages will not go quietly.

Robocalls across the state have been encouraging residents to urge their legislators to vote against the bill, the Hartford Courant reported Wednesday.

The legislation is based on Minnesota’s ban on automated calls, which has been upheld in federal court, the paper reported.
