              DISPOSITION: To Governor
              LOCATION:    Eligible for Governor
 
              SUMMARY:
              This bill makes several unrelated changes.
 
Regarding risk reduction credits earned by inmates, it:
 
1. prohibits someone convicted of 1st degree manslaughter, 1st degree manslaughter with a firearm, or aggravated sexual assault of a minor, or as a persistent dangerous felony offender or persistent dangerous sexual offender, from earning the credits; 2. requires wardens to verify that an inmate being released from a prison earned the credits that are reducing his or her sentence; and 3. requires the Department of Correction (DOC) commissioner, quarterly beginning by January 1, 2016, to report to the General Assembly and post on its website certain information about inmates earning risk reduction credits.
 
The bill requires a pistol or revolver permit holder to present his or her permit when a law enforcement officer (1) observes the person carrying a pistol or revolver and (2) has reasonable suspicion of a crime for purposes of verifying the validity of person's permit and his or her identity. Current law requires permit holders to carry their permits while carrying a pistol or revolver (see BACKGROUND).
 
It also allows parole officers, in performance of their duties, to access the names and addresses of people (1) issued permits to carry or sell handguns, handgun or long gun eligibility certificates, assault weapon possession certificates, or ammunition certificates and (2) who declared possession of large capacity magazines. This information is confidential and current law allows disclosure only to: (1) law enforcement officials, including U.S. probation officers performing their duties; (2) the mental health and addiction services commissioner to carry out statutory gun-related responsibilities; and (3) gun or ammunition sellers, as necessary for the relevant government agency to verify a prospective gun or ammunition buyer's credential. (This does not apply to information in assault weapon certificates or large capacity magazine declarations.)
 
*House Amendment “A” (1) eliminates provisions making U.S. marshals and deputy marshals “peace officers” and increasing the value of the property that must be damaged to be charged with certain types of criminal mischief and (2) adds the provisions on showing a handgun permit, disclosing information to parole officers, prohibiting inmates convicted of certain crimes from earning credits, and requiring wardens to verify inmates' credits.

              TITLE:       Fugitive Defendants

              LAST AMEND:  05/30/2015
              DISPOSITION: To Governor
              LOCATION:    SENATE
 
              SUMMARY:
This bill makes a number of changes in criminal laws. Among other things, it:
 
1. requires a person's probation term to begin after he or she serves any prison sentence; 2. creates a task force to study ways to reduce extradition costs and the feasibility of vacating bond forfeiture orders under certain circumstances; 3. expands the crime of felony murder; 4. makes it a form of 2nd degree assault to intentionally cause physical injury to someone by striking or kicking the other person in the head while the person is in a lying position, thus increasing the penalty for this conduct from a class A misdemeanor to a class D felony; 5. increases the penalty for 2nd degree assault from a class D felony to a class C felony when serious physical injury results; 6. specifies that the 10-year registration period required for certain sex offenders begins when the offender is released into the community; 7. expands the infraction of simple trespass; 8. expands the crimes of tampering with evidence to cover activities while a criminal investigation, in addition to an official proceeding, is pending or anticipated; 9. excludes from participation in accelerated rehabilitation (AR) health care providers or vendors participating in the state's Medicaid program who are charged with (a) 1st degree larceny or (b) 2nd degree larceny involving defrauding a public community of $2,000 or less; 10. excludes from participation in the pretrial alcohol education program people charged with 2nd degree manslaughter with a vessel or 1st degree reckless vessel operation while under the influence and makes other changes to eligibility based on prior convictions and program usage; 11. requires the drug education program portion of the pretrial drug education and community service program be a 15-session, rather than a 15-week, program (§ 12); 12. allows people who would otherwise participate in the family violence education program to participate in the supervised diversionary program when the court finds it is appropriate;
13. no longer requires the Psychiatric Security Review Board (PSRB), when conditionally releasing someone under its jurisdiction, to require that the person have outpatient treatment (although treatment is still required);  14. makes assaulting a state or municipal animal control officer or a licensed and registered security officer a class C felony;
15. makes changes affecting sentencing for 1st degree sexual assault and 1st degree aggravated sexual assault, such as expanding when the court can order probation for these crimes and increasing the mandatory minimum for the latter crime in some circumstances; 16. expands the definition of a “peace officer” to include U.S. marshals and deputy marshals;
17. creates a 16-member Domestic Violence Offender Program Standards Advisory Council to promulgate, review, update, and amend the domestic violence offender program standards; 18. changes the scope of the Superior Courts' local family violence intervention units' role in the provision of victim and offender treatment services; 19. extends to family violence victims the right to keep certain information confidential, as existing law allows for sexual assault victims and victims of injury or risk of injury to, or impairing the morals of, children; 20. increases the penalty for drivers who fail to stop after being involved in accidents causing serious physical injury or death; and 21. prevents land subject to a conservation restriction held by a nonprofit land-holding organization from being acquired by adverse possession.
 
The bill makes three additional changes, not related to criminal laws. It:
1. narrows the applicability of a law allowing for certain master associations under the Common Interest Ownership Act (CIOA) to terminate and transfer their assets to a new nonstock corporation, 2. expands when CIOA executive boards can act without a meeting, and 3. establishes procedures for someone who receives a subpoena related to a civil or probate action in another state or a foreign country and who is not a party to that proceeding to object to the subpoena as an undue or unreasonable burden or expense and the court to rule on a request to enforce the subpoena.
 
Finally, it also makes technical changes.
 
*House Amendment “A” eliminates provisions expanding the crimes of tampering with or intimidating a witness and vacating bond forfeiture orders under certain circumstances and adds the provisions on (1) the extradition task force, (2) intentionally causing physical injury to someone by striking or kicking someone in the head, (3) diversionary programs, (4) PSRB conditional release, (5) assaulting animal control officers and security guards, (6) sexual assault sentencing (7) U.S. marshals, (8) the domestic violence council, (9) family violence intervention units, (10) family violence victim confidentiality, (11) common interest communities, (12) drivers failing to stop at accident scenes, (13) subpoenas from out-of-state actions, and (14) adverse possession
 
EFFECTIVE DATE: October 1, 2015 except the provisions on (1) the extradition cost task force, PRSB, U.S. marshals, domestic violence council, and termination of master associations are effective upon passage; (2) family violence victim confidentiality are effective July 1, 2015; and (3) family violence intervention units are effective January 1, 2016.
