  (A-1) NO DELAY OR RESCHEDULING OF AN INTERVIEW SCHEDULED  PURSUANT  TO
PARAGRAPH  (A)  OF THIS SUBDIVISION SHALL BE GRANTED UPON THE REQUEST OF
AN INMATE WHO IS INCARCERATED BY REASON OF A CONVICTION OF A  CLASS  A-I
FELONY, UNLESS, NOT LESS THAN TEN DAYS PRIOR TO THE SCHEDULED INTERVIEW,
SUCH  INMATE  SHALL  HAVE SUBMITTED A REQUEST THEREFOR IN WRITING TO THE
STATE BOARD OF PAROLE STATING THE REASON FOR SUCH REQUEST AND THE  STATE
BOARD SHALL HAVE APPROVED THE REQUEST FOR GOOD CAUSE SHOWN.
  SHOULD  EXIGENT  CIRCUMSTANCES ARISE PRIOR TO THE SCHEDULED INTERVIEW,
BUT AFTER THE TEN DAY PERIOD, AN EMPLOYEE OF THE  CORRECTIONAL  FACILITY
WHERE  THE  INMATE IS INCARCERATED MAY, ON BEHALF OF THE INMATE, REQUEST
TO RESCHEDULE THE INTERVIEW BASED UPON GOOD CAUSE  NOT  KNOWN  TEN  DAYS
PRIOR.    IF SUCH REQUEST IS APPROVED BY THE STATE BOARD, SUCH INTERVIEW
SHALL BE RESCHEDULED FOR THE NEXT DATE THAT  THE  SAME  ASSIGNED  PAROLE
BOARD  MEMBER WILL BE RETURNING TO THAT CORRECTIONAL FACILITY TO CONDUCT
INTERVIEWS.
  S 2. This act shall take effect on the one hundred twentieth day after
