Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Unified Code of Corrections. Provides that if the court finds that an offender sentenced to a term of imprisonment for a felony meets the eligibility requirements of the Department of Corrections, the court may in its sentencing order approve the offender for placement in the impact incarceration program and the Department shall accept the offender in the program (rather than the Department must consent to the offender's acceptance in the program).

House Floor Amendment No. 2
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Unified Code of Corrections. In a provision concerning impact incarceration, deletes references to "incarceration". Provides that to participate in the program, the person must be physically able to participate in physical activities (rather than strenuous physical activities or labor). Provides that the program shall include community service activities, cognitive behavioral programming, life skills, and reentry planning, in addition to other requirements. Deletes certain program requirements including mandatory physical training and labor, military formation and drills, regimented activities, and uniformity of dress and appearance. Extends the participation period from a range of 120 to 180 days to a range of one year to 18 months. Provides that a committed person shall not have the time required to successfully complete the program extended beyond the maximum 18 month period of participation. Provides that the Department of Corrections shall advocate for the impact program and the Department may identify candidates for participation in the program that were not previously recommended and formally submit the names to the State's Attorney of the committing county.
