FSA Time Credits
Document Number: 2020-25597
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-11-25
Agency: Department of Justice, Bureau of Prisons
This proposed rule would codify the Bureau of Prisons (Bureau) procedures regarding time credits as authorized by the First Step Act of 2018 (FSA), hereinafter referred to as ``FSA Time Credits.'' The FSA provides that eligible inmates may earn FSA Time Credits towards pre- release custody or early transfer to supervised release for successfully completing approved Evidence-Based Recidivism Reduction programs or Productive Activities that are assigned to the inmate based on the inmate's risk and needs assessment. Eligible inmates include those individuals who are sentenced under the U.S. Code and in the custody of the Bureau. However, as required by the FSA, an inmate cannot earn FSA Time Credits if he or she is serving a sentence for a disqualifying offense or has a disqualifying prior conviction. However, these inmates can still earn other benefits, as authorized by the Bureau, for successfully completing recidivism reduction programming.
