BILL NUMBER:S1854 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the executive law, in relation to requiring inmates to have an acceptable residence to qualify for parole PURPOSE: This legislation would require any parolee, prior to release, to secure an acceptable permanent residence and not a temporary shelter, for the purpose of complying with all state and local laws and regu- lations regarding placement of registered sex offenders. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This legislation amends Subparagraph (A) of para- graph (c) of subdivision 2 of Section 259-i of the executive law, as amended by Section 38-f-1 of subpart A of part C of Chapter 62 of 2011, requiting release plans for paroled inmates to include an acceptable residence which must be a permanent residence and not a temporary shel- ter, including, but not limited to a homeless shelter, motel/hotel, or trailer, and shall allow the inmate to comply with all state and local laws and regulations regarding placement of registered sex offenders. JUSTIFICATION: Communities rely on the protection of their children by enforcing state and local laws and regulations regarding homes of regis- tered sex offenders; housing paroled individuals in temporary shelters or other residences cannot ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations. LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2011-12: A.1401/S.1448 2009-10: A.7559/S.4133
