On Wednesday, May 23rd, Amendment #548, proposed by Massachusetts Senator Brian A. Joyce, went to the floor of the Senate. The Amendment would ban the torture of children at the Judge Rotenberg Center, including all electric skin shocks. The Amendment was successfully passed for proposed inclusion in the final budget and will now go to conference committee for consideration. This is the closest we have ever been to a full ban on the use of skin shock at the center.
