U.S Congressional Legislation: Communications

A bill (S. 251) introduced by Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX), which is designed to prohibit prisoners from using smuggled cell phones, has been approved by the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee. The Senate has not announced whether it will consider the bill. The provision would allow corrections officials to petition the government to use wireless jamming devices. (Currently, any interference with wireless services is illegal.)
