I’m calling to support HB414. As a resident of Virginia and one of your constituents, I request your support for phone rate fairness for prisoners and their families. I am convinced that adding additional financial burdens to prisoners and their families is an impediment to maintaining the family bond; it discourages communications within families. The state should be in the business of advancing all that strengthens families and makes for safe communities.
