WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Companies from Missouri and California have been ordered to pay about $1 million in combined penalties for violating do-not-call laws in Kansas.

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt's office said Friday that Buzz Marketing and Communications of Springfield, Mo., and WordSmart Corporation of San Diego have been cited for breaking "The Kansas No-Call Act."

Buzz Marketing was ordered to pay Kansas $952,000 in penalties and fees for violations for contacting at least 93 Kansans and trying to sell them vacation packages in Branson, Mo.

WordSmart agreed to pay Kansas $10,000 in penalties and fees. Several Kansans on the federal no-call list called Schmidt's office to complain they were receiving telemarketing calls trying to sell them computer software designed to prepare students to take standardized tests.
