(b) The appropriate officials of a state party to this compact shall have access, at all reasonable times, to an institution in which it has a contractual right to confine inmates, for the purpose of inspecting the facilities of the institution and visiting those of its inmates who may be confined in the institution.

(c) Inmates confined in an institution under this compact are at all times subject to the jurisdiction of the sending state and may at any time be removed from the institution for transfer to a prison or other institution in the sending state, for transfer to another institution in which the sending state may have a contractual or other right to confine inmates, for release on probation or parole, for discharge, or for any other purpose permitted by the laws of the sending state; however, the sending state continues to be obligated to make any payments that may be required under a contract entered into the terms of Article III of this compact.

(d) A receiving state shall provide regular reports to a sending state on the inmates of that sending state in institutions under this compact, including a conduct record of each inmate, and certify that record to the official designated by the sending state, in order that each inmate may have official review of the inmate's record in determining and altering the disposition of that inmate in accordance with the law in the sending state and in order that the record may be a source of information for the sending state.

(e) All inmates who may be confined in an institution under the provisions of this compact shall be treated in a reasonable and humane manner and shall be treated equally with similar inmates of the receiving state as may be confined in the same institution.

(f) Any hearing to which an inmate, confined under this compact, may be entitled by the laws of the sending state may be had before the appropriate authorities of the sending state or of the receiving state if authorized by the sending state.

In a proceeding had under the provisions of this subsection, the officials of the receiving state shall act solely as agents of the sending state and no final determination may be made in any matter except by the appropriate officials of the sending state.

(g) An inmate confined under this compact shall be released within the territory of the sending state unless the inmate, and the sending and receiving states, agree upon release in some other place. The sending state shall bear the cost of the return of an inmate to its territory.

(h) An inmate confined under the terms of this compact has all rights to participate in and derive any benefits or incur or be relieved of any obligations or have those obligations modified or the inmate's status changed on account of an action or proceeding in which the inmate could have participated if confined in an appropriate institution of the sending state located in that state.

(i) The parent, guardian, trustee, or other person or persons entitled under the laws of the sending state to act for or otherwise function with respect to an inmate may not be deprived of or restricted in the exercise of any power in respect to an inmate confined under the terms of this compact. Article V

Acts Not Reviewable in Receiving State: Extradition

(a) A decision of the sending state in respect to a matter over which it retains jurisdiction under this compact is conclusive upon and not reviewable in the receiving state, but if at the time the sending state seeks to remove an inmate from an institution in the receiving state there is pending against the inmate in that state any criminal charge or if the inmate is formally accused of having committed in that state a criminal offense, the inmate may not be returned without the consent of the receiving state until discharged from prosecution or other form of proceeding, imprisonment or detention for the offense. The duly accredited officers of the sending state shall be permitted to transport inmates under this compact through any state party to this compact without interference.

(b) An inmate who escapes from an institution in which the inmate is confined under this compact is considered a fugitive from the sending state and from the state in which the institution is situated. In the case of an escape to a jurisdiction other than the sending or receiving state, the responsibility for institution of extradition or rendition proceedings is that of the sending state, but nothing contained in this compact may be construed to prevent or affect the activities of officers and agencies of any jurisdiction directed toward the apprehension and return of an escapee.

Article VII

Becoming Effective

When this compact has been enacted into law by any two states, it becomes effective and binding upon them. Thereafter, this compact becomes effective and binding as to any other state upon similar action by that state.

Article VIII

Withdrawal and Termination

An actual withdrawal does not take effect until one year after the notices provided in the statute have been sent. A withdrawal does not relieve the withdrawing state from its obligations assumed under this compact before the effective date of withdrawal. Before the effective date of withdrawal, a withdrawing state shall remove to its territory, at its own expense, those inmates it may have confined under the provisions of this compact.

Article IX

Other Arrangements Unaffected

Nothing contained in this compact may be construed to abrogate or impair any agreement or other arrangement which a party state may have with a nonparty state for the confinement, rehabilitation or treatment of inmates nor to repeal any other laws of a party state authorizing the making of cooperative institutional arrangements. Article X

Construction and Severability

The provisions of this compact shall be liberally construed and are severable. If any phrase, clause, sentence or provision of this compact is declared to be contrary to the constitution of a participating state or of the United States, or the applicability of it to a government, agency, person or circumstance is held invalid, the validity of the remainder of this compact and the applicability of it to a government, agency, person or circumstance is not affected by that holding.

INTERSTATE COMPACT FOR ADULT OFFENDER SUPERVISION

ARTICLE I

PURPOSE AND POLICY

The compacting states to this Interstate Compact for Adult Offender Supervision recognize that each state is responsible for the supervision of adult offenders in the community who are authorized in accordance with the by-laws and rules of this compact to travel across state lines both to and from each compacting state in such a manner as to track the location of offenders, transfer supervision authority in an orderly and efficient manner, and when necessary return offenders to the originating jurisdictions.

The compacting states also recognize that Congress, by enacting the Crime Control Act, 4 U.S.C. 112 (1965), has authorized and encouraged compacts for cooperative efforts and mutual assistance in the prevention of crime.

It is the purpose of this compact and the Interstate Commission created under this compact, through means of joint and cooperative action among the compacting states, to provide the framework for the promotion of public safety and protect the rights of victims through the control and regulation of the interstate movement of offenders in the community; to provide for the effective tracking, supervision, and rehabilitation of these offenders by the sending and receiving states; and to equitably distribute the costs, benefits, and obligations of the compact among the compacting states.

In addition, this compact will create an Interstate Commission that will establish uniform procedures to manage the movement between states of adults placed under community supervision and released to the community under the jurisdiction of courts, paroling authorities, corrections, or other criminal justice agencies that will adopt rules to achieve the purpose of this compact; ensure an opportunity for input and timely notice to victims and to jurisdictions where defined offenders are authorized to travel or to relocate across state lines; establish a system of uniform data collection, access to information on active cases by authorized criminal justice officials, and regular reporting of compact activities to heads of state councils, state executive, judicial, and legislative branches and criminal justice administrators; monitor compliance with rules governing interstate movement of offenders and initiate interventions to address and correct non-compliance; and coordinate training and education regarding regulations of interstate movement of offenders for officials involved in that activity.

The compacting states recognize that there is no right of any offender to live in another state and that duly accredited officers of a sending state may at all times enter a receiving state and there apprehend and retake any offender under supervision subject to the provisions of this compact and by-laws and rules adopted under the compact.

It is the policy of the compacting states that the activities conducted by the Interstate Commission created in this compact are the formation of public policies and are, as a result, public business.
