If I recall correctly the bill never became a law so the whole argument is moot. The original bill was all about telephone slamming and then some senator added the amendment about spamming. It takes both the house and the senate to make a law. Both factions were working up their own slamming bills and the never got together and none of it actually became law. It's all just more spam.
I'm Canadian so I may be way off in my assessment of how a bill becomes law - I just read it somewhere once ;)
