Memo

BILL NUMBER:S758

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the executive law, in relation to an ignition interlock device

PURPOSE: Requires the Department of Corrections and Community Supervision to maintain the responsibility and costs of monitoring any person released on parole with the mandatory requirement of an ignition interlock device.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 of the bill amends Subdivision 15-a of section 259-c of the executive law, as amended by section 38-b of subpart A of part C of chapter 62 of the laws of 2011, to require the parole office to maintain the responsibility and costs of monitoring any person released on parole with the mandatory requirement of installation of an ignition interlock device on their motor vehicle.

Section 2 of the bill provides for an immediate effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: Under Chapter 62 of the Laws of 2011, parolees who are subject to the mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device when released from state prison are monitored by the county agency. The monitoring of parolees by county departments is duplicative and such departments are not equipped to monitor these individuals. The Department of Corrections and Community Supervision is already involved in their reentry and thus better suited for the task.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2012: Passed the Senate (S.5221A/A.7669A)

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
