(3) The committee meets at regularly scheduled times, for example on the second and fourth Thursday of each month at Mt. Meigs Campus, on second and fourth Wednesday at Vacca.
(4) Proposed releases shall be submitted with written justification to the committee at least ten (10) days prior to proposed release date.(Amended by Alabama Administrative Monthly Volume XXXVII, Issue No. 02, November 30, 2018, eff. December 21, 2018.)
