Testimony in opposition to proposed changes to New York City Board of Correction rules that would limit physical contact when family, friends and loved ones visit a person at Rikers or other Deptartment of Correction facilities; would increase use of solitary confinement as punishment, and would limit incoming packages to those coming from an approved list of vendors. CSS opposes these changes in large part because they fracture family ties that are essential to a person’s successful reentry. .
