    Bill Summary

    This bill enacts the "Victims of Crime Executive Clemency Notification Act." Whenever there is an impending clemency action, this bill requires the governor to notify the attorney general and reporter and the district attorney general of the judicial district in which a conviction occurred at least 10 days prior to any reprieve, commutation, pardon, exoneration, or any other form of executive clemency being made public. Prior to notice of the clemency action being made public, this bill requires that the district attorney general, through the victim-witness coordinator, must notify the victim by mail.

    ON MAY 18, 2011, THE SENATE SUBSTITUTED HOUSE BILL 396 FOR SENATE BILL 557, ADOPTED AMENDMENT #1, AND PASSED HOUSE BILL 396, AS AMENDED.

    AMENDMENT #1 removes the specification that the notice from the governor be made "10 days" prior to clemency. This amendment also rewrites the provision regarding notice to the victim to specify that if notice is required by this bill, the district attorney general, through the victim-witness coordinator, must contact the victim or victim's representative by telephone, electronic mail, facsimile or by other means intended to ensure that the victim receives immediate notification; provided, that the victim or victim's representative has provided the district attorney general's office with contact information necessary to accomplish such immediate notification.
