House Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts provisions of the bill. Provides that at least 9 members of the Prisoner Review Board must have a post-graduate degree. Deletes provision that those members must have demonstrated competency in the field of adolescent development. Substitutes first degree murder for homicide offense. Deletes provision that within 6 months of the Prisoner Review Board's determination that the petition was appropriately filed, the Department of Corrections shall prepare a written assessment of the needs of the eligible person and identify programming and services that would be appropriate to prepare the offender for return to the community, and provide a copy of that assessment to the Prisoner Review Board and the eligible person. The Department of Corrections shall make the programming and services available to the eligible person. Provides that if the Prisoner Review Board denies parole after conducting the hearing, it shall issue a written decision denying the parole and provide that decision to the eligible person and his or her counsel within 7 calendar days.
