FCC Takes Action Toward Fair Prison Phone Rates and Stronger Communities
Opens Notice of Proposed Rule Making, marking first major step forward on issue in ten years
Campaign for Prison Phone Justice, Dec. 26, 2012
” Washington, DC – Today the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) took a critical step toward lowering the cost of calls made from prisons, issuing a further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM). The Campaign for Prison Phone Justice applauds the FCC’s action to issue this NPRM, which marks a turning point in the ten- year effort to make the price of inter-state calls from prison affordable. Costing up to 24 times a normal call, prison phone rates unfairly punish inmates’ families, who are forced to cover these calls.”
