TITLE OF BILL:
to amend chapter 688 of the laws of 2003 amending the executive law,
relating to enacting the interstate compact for adult offender
supervision, in relation to the state council for adult offender
supervision; and to amend the correction law, in relation to presumptive
PURPOSE OF BILL:
This bill would amend Chapter 688 of the Laws of 2003 that created the
State Council for Interstate Adult Offender Supervision ("State
Council") and Correction Law § 806(6), to make technical corrections
that are required following the 2011 merger of the Division of Parole
("DOP") and the Department of Correctional Services ("DOCS") into the
new Department of Corrections and Community Supervision ("DOCCS").
SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 of the bill would amend Chapter 688 of the Laws of 2003, as
amended by Chapter 368 of the Laws of 2004, by moving the State
Council from DOP to DOCCS. It also would correct the titles of the
members of the State Council in light of the merger.
Section 2 of the bill would amend Correction Law § 806(6) to change a
reference from Executive Law § 259-b to Executive Law § 259-i.
Section 3 of the bill provides the effective date.
In Chapter 688 of the Laws of 2003, the State adopted the Interstate
Compact for Adult Offender Supervision in Executive Law § 259-mm.
Chapter 368 of the Laws of 2004 revised the structure of the State
Council, an entity that must exist in every state that is a signatory
to the " Interstate Compact for Adult Offender Supervision, by
placing it within DOP. Part C of Chapter 62 of the Laws of 2011
eliminated DOP and merged its functions into a newly created DOCCS.
Correction Law § 806 (6) sets forth the standards and criteria for
presumptive release of non-violent offenders but mistakenly
references Executive Law § 259-b, which merely sets forth the
organization of the Board of Parole, rather than Executive § 259-i.
PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
This is a new bill.
STATEMENT IN SUPPORT:
The legislation that merged DOP and DOCS did n9t address the placement
of the State Council but continued its existence within DOP. This
technical amendment will now place the State Council with DOCCS
thereby complying with the Interstate Compact for Adult Offender
Supervision. Other technical amendments are made to update the names
of agencies in light of the recent merger.
Correction Law § 806(6) also contains a technical error resulting from
the legislation that created DOCCS. In referencing the Board of
Parole's discretionary power to release inmates, the law amended
Correction Law §806(6) by mistakenly referencing Executive Law
259-b which relates to the Board of Parole's organization. The
correct statutory reference should be Executive Law § 259-i which
addresses the Board of Parole's discretionary release authority.
This bill would correct this technical error.
This bill would have no budgetary impact.
This law would take effect immediately.
