JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi regulators are ordering a pair of Arizona companies to pay a record $5.7 million fine for more than 1,000 violations of Mississippi's do-not-call law.

Public Service Commissioners voted 3-0 Tuesday to impose the penalty, the largest the body has ever imposed under state laws banning unwanted telemarketing.

The fine was levied against Purchase Power Solutions LLC of Chandler, Ariz.; ELH Consulting of Tucson, Ariz.; and two directors, Lisa Miller and Emory L. Holley IV.

The companies and individuals failed to respond to legal complaints from the Mississippi PSC. The commission levied the maximum $5,000 fine for each of 1,141 violations.

Until now, the largest fine imposed by Mississippi regulators for no-call violations had been the $945,000 levied in May against Roy M. Cox of Santa Ana, Calif.
