Parole officers and law enforcement personnel would communicate more often and parolees would be drug-tested more frequently under suggestions outlined by a state House subcommittee.
The changes are recommended in response to the case of Patrick Selepak, who has pleaded guilty to killing three people in southeast Michigan earlier this year.
Authorities say he should have been behind bars on a parole violation.
Selepak has been sentenced to life in prison with no chance for parole in the murders.
The Michigan Department of Corrections has clarified or changed some internal policies as a result of the Selepak case.
The Legislature has passed some bills aimed at improving the system and several more are in the works.
