(UNDATED) - Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller is asking the state's political parties to refrain from using robo-calls for campaigning.

The Chairmen of the State Democratic, Republican, and Libertarian parties all signed a treaty with Zoeller pledging they would not encourage or support the use of robo-calling and encourage all election candidates refrain from the practice.

Zoeller calls the agreement the "treaty of 2010."

While the document is not legally binding, Zoeller says it may help "prevent bad decisions made during the heat of battle."

He says the treaty will not stop robo-calling by special interests groups, but he will continue to prosecute anyone who violates the state law as it stands.

Legal challenges to Indiana's Auto-Dialer Law are pending in two courts and are not expected to be resolved before this year's elections.
