AN  ACT  to amend the executive law, in relation to requiring inmates to
  have an acceptable residence to qualify for parole

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

  Section  1.  Subparagraph  (A)  of  paragraph  (c) of subdivision 2 of
section 259-i of the executive law, as amended by section 12 of part AAA
of chapter 56 of the laws of 2009, is amended to read as follows:
  (A) Discretionary release on parole shall not be granted merely  as  a
reward  for  good  conduct  or  efficient  performance  of  duties while
confined but after considering if  there  is  a  reasonable  probability
that,  if  such  inmate  is released, he will live and remain at liberty
without violating the law, and that his release is not incompatible with
the welfare of society and will not so deprecate the seriousness of  his
crime  as  to  undermine  respect  for law. In making the parole release
decision, the guidelines adopted pursuant to subdivision four of section
two hundred fifty-nine-c of this article shall require that the  follow-
ing  be considered: (i) the institutional record including program goals
and accomplishments, academic achievements, vocational education, train-
ing or work assignments, therapy and  interpersonal  relationships  with
staff  and  inmates;  (ii)  performance,  if  any, as a participant in a
temporary  release  program;  (iii)  release  plans  [including]   SHALL
INCLUDE,  IN  ADDITION TO community resources, employment, education and
training and support services available to  the  inmate,  AN  ACCEPTABLE
RESIDENCE.  IN  ORDER  FOR A RESIDENCE TO BE AN ACCEPTABLE RESIDENCE AND
QUALIFY THE INMATE FOR PAROLE RELEASE, SUCH RESIDENCE SHALL BE A  PERMA-

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
