Schaer, Danielsen & Sumter Cost-Saving Measure to Expand Medical Parole for Those Posing No Public Safety Threat Now Law

Asm. Gary Schaer Legislation Assembly Democrats Gary Schaer, Joseph Danielsen and Shavonda Sumter sponsored to expand eligibility for medical parole for inmates who are physically incapacitated and do not pose a public safety threat is now law.

"This is both a humane and cost-effective approach to incarceration," said Schaer (D-Bergen/Passaic). "Those who are eligible for parole under this law are physically incapacitated and do not pose a threat to public safety. Releasing them from the confines of our prison system will save the state money by shifting the costs to Medicaid, which is funded in part by the federal government, and in turn enable them to get treatment in a more humane setting."
