STATEMENT OF PURPOSE RS 08855C1 The members of the Commission of Pardons and Parole currently are appointed by the members of the State Board of Correction, which also controls the appropriation requests made by the Commission and reviews personnel decisions for Commission staff. This bill would allow the Governor to appoint the Commission of Pardons and Parole members, as well as the Executive Director of the Commission, and would give the Legislature an opportunity to review the appointment of the Executive Director of the Commission by making that position subject to confirmation by the Senate. Also, the Department of Correction is the only executive branch agency that is not required to follow the Administrative Procedures Act (APA) when adopting procedural rules. (The Commission for Pardons and Parole is covered and follows the APA when adopting rules.) This bill would give the Department the same protection for policy development and rule making that other state departments have by bringing their rule making under legislative purview. In order to exclude inmate complaints and other sensitive issues, this bill requires that procedural rules be brought before the germane committees of the Legislature for review and approval, like other state agencies, but exempts them from the other provisions of Chapter 52. FISCAL IMPACT In FY 2000, there would be a one-time fiscal impact to the Department of Correction for the costs of the initial publication of the agency's rules in the Administrative Bulletin as proposed rules, followed by the publication of notices of adoption of the proposed rules as pending rules, with any changes noted. Based upon a review of other recent state agency efforts, it is reasonable to estimate a maximum cost of $21,000 (205 pages @ $102) for the first year, and $10,500 (205 pages @ $51) for the following years. In addition, some redirection of staff efforts will take place the first two years to accomplish the rule making. The Dept. of Correction's administrative functions are primarily funded through the General Fund. Contact: Sen. Denton Darrington Legislative Office: 332-1317 STATEMENT OF PURPOSE/FISCAL IMPACT S1110
