Prison Cell Phone Jamming Bill Passed In Senate

The Senate on Monday passed the Safe Prisons Communications Act of 2009 (S.251), which allows states to petition the Federal Communications Commission for the authority to "jam" - or block the use of cell phones from prison.

Under current law, the FCC does not allow cell phone jamming of any kind.

The bill will now move to the House of Representatives for consideration.
