Comprehensive Parole Reduction Act. Requires the Parole Board to adopt an analytical scale to assess risk and establishes a Parole Guidelines Review Panel. The bill also provides that, with some exceptions, once a person is considered eligible for parole the Parole Board shall not use the nature of the offense in determining that person's eligibility or suitability for release on parole and no person shall be denied parole based solely on the nature of the offense after the fifth year of becoming eligible.
