A05705 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A5705A
 
SPONSOR: Joyner
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the correction law and the executive law, in relation to work related labor protests not being considered a parole violation   PURPOSE: The purpose of this bill is to ensure that individuals subject to vari- ous forms of supervised release have the right to protest work-related labor conditions.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section one would amend the Correction law by adding a new Section 210 which states that any individual who is granted presumptive release, parole, conditional release, or release to post-release supervision shall not be deemed to be in violation of said release, or other-wise have their release status terminated, solely because the individual participated in a work-related labor protest. Section two of the bill amends section 274 of the correction law by adding a new subdivision 11 stating that a local conditional release commission shall not determine that an individual who has been condi- tionally released has either lapsed into criminal ways or company, or otherwise violated one or more conditions of his or her conditional release, merely because the individual participated in a work-related labor protest. Section three of the bill amends the executive law by adding a new Section 259-t mandating that the state board of parole shall not deem an individual to be in violation of, or otherwise terminate, an individ- ual's presumptive release, parole, conditional release, release to post- release supervision, or other form of supervised release solely because he or she participated in a work-related labor protest. Section four of the bill states that the act shall take effect imme- diately.   EXISTING LAW: There is no existing law that expressly addresses the right of a person to protest work-related labor conditions despite being under various forms of supervision.   JUSTIFICATION: A person has the right to protest work-related labor conditions regard- less of whether he or she is under supervision by State or local correc- tional authorities. This bill would ensure that any person under super- vision has to right to protest work-related labor issues without fear of being held in violation of their release status.   FISCAL IMPACT ON THE STATE: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately
