Criminal Legal Reform
Bill Number: HB17-1308
Year: 2017
ACLU Position: Support
Sponsors: J. Salazar/L. Sias/J. Cooke/D. Kagan


The bill eliminates certain mandatory conditions of parole while
preserving the discretion of the state board of parole (board) and parole
officers to impose such conditions. Specifically, the bill removes the
requirement that:
• The board fix the manner and time of payment of
restitution as a condition of every parole;
• Every parolee obtain the knowledge and consent of his or
her community parole officer before changing residence, instead requiring a parolee to notify his or her parole
officer before any change of residence;
• Every parolee submit to urinalysis or other drug tests;
• Every parolee not associate with any other person on
parole, on probation, or with a criminal record or with any
inmate of a correctional facility without the permission of
his or her community parole officer; and
• The board require every parolee at the parolee’s own
expense to submit to random chemical testing of a
biological substance sample from the parolee to determine
the presence of drugs or alcohol.
