I did a quick search on Google and came up with this:

http://watchdog.org/55623/parole-pardon-review/

Quote:
“There’s too many complaints,” he told Montana Watchdog during a break in the Law and Justice Interim Committee meeting. “Where there’s smoke there’s fire someplace.”
Reading the entire article, it doesn't sound like anything's going to happen any time soon. The review process is supposed to go into 2014. And if they do eliminate the parole board, there would be no early release at all - inmates would have to serve their entire sentence.

Unfortunately, I don't know. Have you tried calling the prison's main information line? The other person who might be able to help you would be your loved one's counselor.

Wish I could be of more help.

I did a little digging to try to answer your question and found this: http://bopp.mt.gov/overview.mcpx

We are proud to say the Montana Board of Pardons and Parole has been re-accredited for the years 2010-2013.
Looks like it won't be a new parole board. As I read the article, it sounds like the same parole board will still be sitting through the end of 2013.
