Massachusetts has now become the fifth state in the US to allow inmates to make phone calls for free, thanks to a new bill signed into law by Governor Maura Healey.
The new law went into effect on Friday and includes all 14 correctional facilities in the state, according to a news release from the Massachusetts Department of Correction.
The change will “provide equitable access to sustained communication between incarcerated individuals and their loved ones,” says the news release.
There is no limit to the number of calls each inmate can make, according to the release.
