Default New mail rules Texas-no cards anymore!

I have just been informed by my penpal that since 3-1-2020 the Texas DCJ doesn't allow any greeting cards anymore. Only letters on white paper plus 10 photographs per envelope... has anybody else heard of that?

Thats a shame hopefully it won't be a permanent change.
