Inmate Discipline Rules: Subpart Revision and Clarification
In this document, the Bureau of Prisons (Bureau) proposes to amend its Inmate Discipline and Special Housing Unit (SHU) regulations. We intend this amendment to streamline and clarify these regulations, eliminating unnecessary text and obsolete language and removing internal agency procedures that need not be in rules text. We also make some substantive changes to our list of prohibited acts for which disciplinary sanctions may be imposed and alter the list of possible sanctions available to allow Disciplinary Hearing Officers more flexibility in adapting the sanction to fit the seriousness of the violation.
Inmate Fees for Health Care Services
The Bureau of Prisons (Bureau) finalizes rules describing procedures we will follow for charging inmates fees for certain kinds of health services, as required under the Federal Prisoner Health Care Copayment Act of 2000 (Pub. L. 106-294, October 12, 2000, 114 Stat 1038, codified at 18 U.S.C. 4048).
