At the end of existing proviso language, before Specific Appropriation 
583, INSERT:

The Department of Corrections shall conduct a review of the performance 
of electronic monitoring devices used to monitor work release inmates 
and supervised offenders. The review must concentrate on device 
performance under conditions and in locations that affect the ability of 
the device to acquire and maintain a GPS signal or to communicate with 
the electronic monitoring control facility. The review must also examine 
whether device performance or monitoring protocol requires an offender 
to move periodically in order to demonstrate that the device has not 
been altered or removed. The department shall prepare and submit a 
report of its findings to the Governor's Office of Policy and Budget, 
the chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee, and the chair of the 
House Appropriations Committee by November 1, 2015.
