Provides that before a participant is selected for the Program, the petitioner shall successfully complete an atonement and restorative justice program prepared by the Department. Following completion of this program of atonement and restorative justice, the Department shall make an exhaustive effort to find and notify family members of the victim of the petitioner's offense and to afford them the opportunity to participate in the Department's final selection process for the Pathway to Community Program. Provides that the Department shall select 50 participants for the Program from petitions submitted to it by the Department. Provides that up to $1,000 of trauma-informed victim services or trauma-certified professional therapy shall be provided by the Department to family members of the victim of the petitioner's offense. Insurance policies of the family members of the victim of the petitioner's offense or family members financial resources shall first be used to pay the costs of these services or therapy. Optional participation by family members of the victim of petitioner's offense shall be provided by the Department at no cost to the family members of the victim.

Provides that the Department shall select a panel of independent researchers to assess the effectiveness of the Program and to make annual recommendations to the Governor and General Assembly as to whether the Program should be extended.

 State Mandates Fiscal Note (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 This bill does not create a State mandate.

 Correctional Note (Dept of Corrections)
 The fiscal impact on the Department of Corrections is unknown. There would be no population impact on the Department within the first ten years after enactment because offenders would not be released beyond their current projected length of stay until more than 10 years from the date of enactment. The Department currently lacks the resources, training, curriculum, victim information, and funding to enact this proposal.
