U.S. Congressional Legislation: Communications

A bill (S. 251) introduced by Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX) designed to prohibit prisoners from using smuggled cell phones would allow corrections officials to petition the government to use wireless jamming devices. (Currently, any interference with wireless services is illegal.) In deciding whether to grant a petition, the government must consider whether the jamming device would interfere with the work of local first responders or other public safety or emergency personnel.
