A bill sponsored by Democratic state Sen. Leland Yee that would force telephone companies and phone book producers to allow customers to opt out of receiving phone books passed the Senate Appropriations Committee on Monday. The legislation would allow customers to call a toll-free number or visit a website in order to opt out. More than 78 million telephone directories are delivered annually in California.
