 AN ACT to amend the executive law, in relation to findings of the  state
   board  of  parole  necessary for discretionary release of incarcerated
   persons on 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  chapter  130  of  the
 laws of 2016, is amended to read as follows:
   (A)  [Discretionary  release] 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 probabili-
 ty  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]  TO ANY INCARCERATED PERSON
 APPEARING BEFORE THE BOARD WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR RELEASE ON PAROLE, UNLESS
 THE PAROLE CASE RECORD DEMONSTRATES THERE IS A CURRENT AND  UNREASONABLE
 RISK THE PERSON WILL VIOLATE THE LAW IF RELEASED AND SUCH RISK CANNOT BE
 MITIGATED BY PAROLE SUPERVISION. In making the [parole release decision]
 DETERMINATION  AS  TO  WHETHER A PERSON POSES A CURRENT AND UNREASONABLE
 RISK OF VIOLATING THE LAW IF RELEASED, the procedures  adopted  pursuant
 to  subdivision four of section two hundred fifty-nine-c of this article
 shall require that the following be considered: (i)  [the  institutional
 record  including  program  goals and accomplishments, academic achieve-
 ments,] ANY AND ALL EVIDENCE OF REHABILITATION AND REFORM, INCLUDING BUT
 NOT LIMITED TO  SELECTION  FOR  PARTICIPATION  IN  A  TEMPORARY  RELEASE
 
  EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                            LBD07240-06-1
