Senate Hearing in Trenton Thursday on Phone Rates Bill

The Senate Law & Public Safety Committee will be hearing a bill on reducing phone rates in NJ prisons and jails on Thursday at 10:30am. The bill, S.1771, introduced by Senator Turner (LD-15) will likely be amended to reflect the new state contract that will lower state prison phone rates to 4.4 cents by August 25th, and hopefully address the remaining problems with the exorbitant rates and commissions being charged in the county jails. The location is: Committee Room 10, 3rd Floor, State House Annex, Trenton, NJ. Join us to help encourage the committee to move a strong bill to the Senate floor!
