Dear Ms. Worley,
I am writing in regards to the proposed changes to mail rules to allow
prisoners to receive used books (OAR 291-131-0025). I fully support this
change because I feel that prisoners are under - served in many ways by
not having access to used books.
The new rule will help all prisoners have greater access to books and
educational materials to learn from. I also feel it's important to pass
this rule because indigent prisoners are currently at a disadvantage in
acquiring books, and allowing used books will make it a lot more possible
to get books at a lesser cost.
Thank you for addressing this issue.
