Governor Paterson has signed Bill A09727/S6731 into law.

The specific provision of the Bill is to "restore to the Board of Parole the discretion, after three consecutive years of successful unrevoked parole release, to grant a discharge from parole supervision to persons who are serving an indeterminate sentence with a maximum term of life, and for whom the Board of Parole has determined that a discharge from parole supervision would be in the best interest of society".
