Montana law provides:
46-23-218: Authority of the board to adopt rules. The board may adopt any rules that it considers proper or necessary with respect to the eligibility of prisoners for parole, the conduct of parole hearings, video hearings, progress reviews, the conduct of revocation proceedings, clemency proceedings, and conditions to be imposed upon parolees.
The Board’s rules were last revised and published January 23, 2016. The revisions were in response to legislative action taken by the 2015 Legislature that required board hearings to be audio & video recorded as well as modifications to the Clemency system.
