The secretary of the department may now transfer an offender from a department correctional facility to home detention in the community if it is determined that the graduated reentry program is an appropriate placement and must assist the offender's transition from confinement to the community, even if they have not served at least twelve months in total confinement in a state correctional facility.

The bill also removes the 6-month maximum on length of participation in the program.
