Public Safety and Homeland Security
Department of Corrections


Page 332, line 51, strike "three" and insert "four".


(This amendment adjusts the eligibility requirement for the Behavioral Correction Program to require that eligible inmates have four, rather than three years remaining on their sentence in order to participate in the program. In its report on this program to the Secretary of Public Safety and Homeland Security, dated June 29, 2015, the Department of Corrections recommended this change in order to assure that the participants have sufficient time to complete the program.)
