AN ACT CONCERNING THE ADMINISTRATOR OF THE INTERSTATE COMPACT FOR ADULT OFFENDER SUPERVISION

SUMMARY: This act eliminates the Department of Correction commissioner's duty to act as the state's administrator of the Interstate Compact for Adult Offender Supervision. The compact administrator is the person in each member state who is responsible for administering and managing the state's supervision and transfer of offenders under the compact (CGS 54-133).

By law, each compact member state can determine the qualifications of the compact administrator, who is appointed by the state's Council for Interstate Adult Offender Supervision or the governor in consultation with the legislature and judiciary.

EFFECTIVE DATE: July 1, 2013

BACKGROUND

Interstate Compact for Adult Offender Supervision

Among member states, the compact governs (1) tracking adult offenders under supervision, (2) transferring supervision among compact states, and (3) returning offenders to their original jurisdictions when necessary. The Interstate Commission for Adult Offender Supervision makes rules to cover these general areas and oversees the interstate movement of adult offenders between compact states. Each state has a council that oversees participation in the commission and develops policy on compact operations and procedures.
