CARSON CITY — The Nevada Senate gave unanimous approval Wednesday to a pilot program allowing inmates to use electronic devices to take classes and vocational training through College of Southern Nevada.
Senate Bill 306 now goes to the Assembly.
Supporters said it will give those offenders more access to educational and employment opportunities.
Department of Corrections officials said inmate access with electronic devices will be limited and managed through internal controls.
