Bill Summary

The bill restricts a person from applying for clemency for a crime if a resentencing hearing is scheduled or has been requested or if the person has not exhausted all state appeal and administrative processes before applying or being considered for clemency. If an application for clemency was submitted before a resentencing hearing was scheduled or requested, the governor is barred from considering and acting upon such application until the conclusion of the resentencing hearing. The executive director of the department of corrections shall promulgate rules relating to the determination of whether an individual is incapable of exhausting all state or administrative processes due to indigence or other matters.
(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
