A. By September 1 of each year, the Department of Corrections shall provide a status report on the Statewide Community-Based Corrections System for State-Responsible Offenders to the Chairmen of the House Courts of Justice; Health, Welfare and Institutions; and Appropriations Committees and the Senate Courts of Justice; Rehabilitation and Social Services; and Finance Committees.


B. The Department of Corrections and the Virginia Parole Board shall analyze the comparative costs and benefits of state operation compared to contracting for privately-operated minimum security assisted living or nursing facilities, or other appropriate facilities or programs for lower-risk geriatric offenders. Copies of the analysis shall be provided to the Chairmen of the Senate Finance and House Appropriations Committees by September 1, 2008.


C. The Department of Corrections shall report on its progress in implementing evidence-based practices in selected probation and parole districts, and recommend steps to expand this initiative into additional districts. The report shall place particular emphasis on measuring the effectiveness of these practices in reducing recidivism. Copies of the report shall be provided to the Chairmen of the Senate Finance and House Appropriations Committees by September 1, 2008.


D. The Department of Corrections shall report on the potential costs and benefits of steps which would be required to divert up to 50 percent of prison-bound, nonviolent offenders who have scored no more than 38 points on the risk assessment instrument of the Virginia Criminal Sentencing Commission. The department shall consult with the commission on developing appropriate steps to secure the input of the Judicial Department in conducting this report. Copies of the report shall be provided to the Chairmen of the Senate Finance and House Appropriations Committees by September 1, 2008.


E. The Department of Corrections shall report on the comparative costs and benefits of state operation compared to contracting for privately-operated minimum security pre-release or transitional facilities for offenders who are leaving prison, and return-to-custody facilities for habitual technical probation violators. Copies of the report shall be provided to the Chairmen of the Senate Finance and House Appropriations Committees by September 1, 2008.
