Exclamation Are Federal inmate calling rates going to be reduced ?

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas. I heard from different sources that the inmate calling rates are going to be reduced but I think there's been a hold by the court system or something similar. Can anyone please tell me if it's true about the reduced calling rates and why are they being on hold by the court system? Happy Holidays!

Here's a link to a March 2016 CNN article about the appeals court's stay of the FCC reduced inmate phone rates.

I think the bop lowered the cost of long distance and collect calls anyway to 21 and 25 cents/min with no additional connection charges..

So has the bop already lowered the cost of phone calls? If so, when did they lower it?

I think the bop lowered the phone rates when the FCC first issued the regulation. Local calls were already 6 cents/min. Long distance dropped from 23 to 21 cents/min, and collect calls went to 25 cents/min with no "connection" charges.
