BILL NUMBER:S758

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)

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.

  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,

such  release, that such person install and maintain, in accordance with
the provisions of section eleven hundred ninety-eight of the vehicle and
