(b) After four years from the date of an order for provisional discharge or discharge
of civil commitment, the individual may petition the head of the treatment facility from
which the individual was provisionally discharged or discharged to have the scope of
notification and disclosure based solely upon the individual's assigned risk level under
section 244.052.

(c) If an individual's provisional discharge is revoked for any reason, the four-year
time period under paragraph (b) starts over from the date of a subsequent order for
provisional discharge or discharge except that the head of the treatment facility or
designee may, in the sole discretion of the head or designee, determine that the individual
may petition before four years have elapsed from the date of the order of the subsequent
provisional discharge or discharge and notify the individual of that determination.

(d) The head of the treatment facility shall appoint a multidisciplinary committee to
review and make a recommendation on a petition made under paragraph (b). The head
of the treatment facility or designee may grant or deny the petition. There is no review
or appeal of the decision. If a petition is denied, the individual may petition again after
two years from the date of denial.

(e) Nothing in this subdivision shall be construed to give an individual an affirmative
right to petition the head of the treatment facility earlier than four years after the date of an
order for provisional discharge or discharge.
