BILL NUMBER:S6256

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

PURPOSE:

Requires the Department of Corrections and Community Supervision 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 Department of
Corrections and Community Supervision is already involved in their
reentry and thus better suited for the task.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

2012: Passed the Senate (S.5221A/A.7669A)
2013- Passed the Senate (S.758)

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

Immediately.
