OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ A bill introduced in the state Legislature would restrict automated telephone calls related to political campaign.

The bill by Senator Kenneth Corn of Poteau requires the calling device to disconnect within 20 second of when the person receiving the call hangs up and calls would not be allowed before 9 AM or after 9 PM.

Also, calls to Oklahomans registered with the attorney general's ``Do Not Call List'' would be prohibited.
