[GRAPHIC=Do Not Call]
No waiting for THIS call-- Congress has quickly passed legislation that'll ensure consumers can block those unwanted telemarketing calls.
But there's still some doubt as to whether the service will take effect next week after a SECOND federal judge ruled the "Do Not Call" list violates free speech.
Aleen Sirgany reports.

Five residents are dead and at least 25 other senior citizens are injured after a fire broke out at a nursing last night in Nashville.
Authorities say the six- alarm blaze at the N-H-C Healthcare Center burned for more than an hour before firefighters were able to contain it.
Crews had to carry the majority of the nearly 120 nursing home residents out of the burning building because they couldn't walk.
Victims were immediately taken to a local hospital.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
Radford University police are investigating yet another report of a sexual assault.
Police say this one happened around 10:45 Wednesday night near Norwood Hall.

The other allegedly occurred just before midnight Monday.
Police say they are awaiting lab results before charging anyone in that case.

A family is reunited at Mill Mountain Zoo.
For the first time since they were born, the snow leopard cubs at Mill Mountain Zoo are hanging out with the whole family.
Zoo keepers introduced cubs Harry and Elsie to their father, Boris, last week.
The cubs were just 12-weeks old and weighed about 12-and a half pounds at the time.
Curator Dave Wood says the older the cubs get, the less protective their mom, Tasha, becomes.
All four cats are now on display together.
Snow leopards are one of only a few species of big cats in which fathers can be introduced into the family picture without serious threat of harm to their cubs.
Hollins University is expanding its art department with help from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
The V-M-F-A has named Hollins University as a museum "partner" meaning the school will become a sort of satellite location.

The facility will allow all facets of the art department to be under one roof.

A powerful earthquake measuring eight-point-oh has struck Northern Japan,
forcing thousands to evacuate and prompting authorities to issue tsunami warnings that extend as far as Hawaii.
The quake knocked out power to 16- thousand homes, derailed a train, and injured more than 240 people.
While authorities aren't reporting any deaths directly associated with the earthquake, they say it was the strongest one anywhere in the world so far this year.

They say the founding fathers would not be happy with the way companies are logging in their namesake forests.
They also say the Forest Service is jeopardizing wildlife, soil and drinking water and continues to cut roads through otherwise natural areas.
But a professional forester says the harvesting of trees HELPS some animals and plants by letting sunlight shine to the ground.
Yesterday's visit was just one stop on this road show tour as it heads through Western and Central Virginia.
A week ago, most of Virginia was waking up to downed trees and power lines - and for many residents it's not over.
That's why Governor Warner is asking Virginians to donate items to help victims of Hurricane Isabel.
Relief organizations say what they need most are canned foods and beverages, cleaning supplies, toiletries, and paper goods.
One place you can drop off donations is the second harvest food bank in Roanoke.

The swine races are a popular event at the Virginia State Fair.
As is the petting zoo and the rides.
But this year, you are likely to find just as many people at the new FEMA booth as at the new West Texas Rattlesnake Show.
Isabel may have closed down parts of the state, but the fair opened as scheduled.
And is drawing large crowds, because children in the area don't have school and their parents don't have power.
((JAY LUGAR/VA STATE FAIR: PEOPLE ARE READY FOR A BREAK AND THE STATE FAIR IS HERE AND OPEN A GOOD PLACE TO OFFER A RESPITE FROM THE TOUGH WEEK EVERY ONE HAS HAD.))
But like many Virginians, the fair still felt the effects of Isabel.
Many buildings at the fairgrounds were without power until yesterday so judging was done by flashlights.
And unlike previous years, the exhibit hall is displaying a special hurricane section.
((ANNE BAKER/MGR, EXHIBIT HALL: THESE ARE THINGS RECEIVED AFTER HURRICANE, THEY COULDN'T GET IN TIME FOR THE JUDGING LAST SUNDAY WE WE WILL BE JUDGING THEM SEPARATELY AND THEN AWARDING THEM THE ISABEL AWARD, FIRST, SECOND THIRD AND BEST IN SHOW.))
The fair is also offering a service to the thousands of Virginians whose cars got in the way of Isabel and falling trees.

A new community center and cultural business incubator has won another federal grant.
Located in Floyd, the Jacksonville Center recently celebrated its grand opening, after major renovations to the former dairy barn.
The facility will provide space and support for artists, and other businesses with a cultural focus.
Yesterday, 9th District Congressman Rick Boucher announced a 133- thousand dollar grant that will allow the center to construct a dormitory on the property, and perform additional repairs.
Boucher says the grant will allow the Jacksonville Center to become the first residential craft school located in Virginia.
