BILL NUMBER:S5221

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the executive law, in relation to an ignition interlock
device

PURPOSE: Requires the parole office to maintain the
responsibility and
costs of monitoring any person released on parole with the mandatory
requirement of an ignition interlock device.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 of the bill amends Subdivision
15-a of section 259-c of the
executive law, as amended by section 38-b of subpart A of part C of
chapter 62 of the laws of 2011, to require the parole office to
maintain the responsibility and costs of monitoring any person
released on parole with the mandatory requirement of installation of
an ignition interlock device on their motor vehicle.

Section 2 of the
bill provides for an immediate effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: Under Chapter 62 of the Laws of 2011,
parolees who are
subject to the mandatory installation of an Ignition Interlock Device
when released from State prison are monitored by the County agency.
The monitoring of parolees by County departments is duplicative and
such departments are not equipped to monitor these individuals. The
Parole office is already involved in their reentry and thus better
suited for the task.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1.  Subdivision 15-a of section 259-c of the executive law, as
amended by section 38-b of subpart A of part C of chapter 62 of the laws
of 2011, is amended to read as follows:
  15-a. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, where  a  person  is
serving  a sentence for a violation of section 120.03, 120.04, 120.04-a,
125.12, 125.13 or 125.14 of the penal law, or a  felony  as  defined  in
paragraph  (c) of subdivision one of section eleven hundred ninety-three
of the vehicle and traffic law, if such person is released on parole  or
conditional  release the board shall require as a mandatory condition of
such release, that such person install and maintain, in accordance  with
the provisions of section eleven hundred ninety-eight of the vehicle and
traffic  law, an ignition interlock device in any motor vehicle owned or
operated by such person during the term of such  parole  or  conditional
release  for such crime.  THE PAROLE OFFICE SHALL MAINTAIN THE RESPONSI-
BILITY AND COSTS OF MONITORING ANY PERSON RELEASED ON  PAROLE  WITH  THE
MANDATORY REQUIREMENT OF INSTALLATION OF AN IGNITION INTERLOCK DEVICE ON
THEIR MOTOR VEHICLE. Provided further, however, the board may not other-
wise  authorize  the  operation  of  a motor vehicle by any person whose

ant to the provisions of the vehicle and traffic law.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
