eligible for release on parole or conditional  release  within  eighteen
months.  Provided,  further,  however, that a person under a determinate
sentence as a second felony drug offender for a class B  felony  offense
defined  in  article  two  hundred  twenty  of  the  penal  law, who was
sentenced pursuant to section 70.70 of such law, shall not  be  eligible
to  participate  in  a  temporary  release program until the time served
under imprisonment for his or her determinate  sentence,  including  any
jail  time credited pursuant to the provisions of article seventy of the
