Agency: Department of Justice, Parole Commission
The U.S. Parole Commission is adopting a final rule to amend the voting requirements for decisions to terminate a D.C. Code parolee's supervision before the expiration of the sentence. The new rule permits one commissioner to make the decision to terminate parole. The rule currently requires two commissioners to agree to terminate parole early. The Commission is also revising reporting requirements for supervision officers who supervise D.C. Code offenders on parole and supervised release by removing the requirement for reports to be submitted after the completion of 12 months of continuous supervision.
