IFRP Not an Improper Delegation of Judicial Authority to BOP

The Bureau of Prisons did not usurp a judicial function by imposing a schedule governing the plaintiff's payment of the criminal fine imposed as part of his sentence. The court did not delegate its function to the Bureau; it made the fine payable immediately and the Bureau merely attempted to implement that direction.
The Inmate Financial Responsibility Program has been uniformly upheld against constitutional attack. Bureau personnel's decision to count as available funds those the plaintiff received from outside sources was authorized by IFRP regulations. See: McGhee v. Clark, 166 F.3d 884 (7th Cir. 1999).
