SB-1700

AN ACT CONCERNING CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM.

AMENDMENT

LCO No.: 10111

OFA Fiscal Note

SEE BELOW

The amendment requires the Department of Correction to establish a discharge plan for all inmates released from a DOC facility and requires those released to be met by a family member or other individual upon release. Although DOC currently engages in discharge planning for inmates including arranging for the meeting of appropriate individuals, the extent to which the agency meets the requirements of the amendment is uncertain.
