USSC releases notice of proposed priorities

The dog days of August in the federal sentencing world typically bring a Federal Register "Notice of Proposed Priorities and Request for Public Comment" from the US Sentencing Commission.  And, without any delay, the USSC has now issued this 5-page Federal Register Notice. Here is how the USSC describes its latest work on its website:

As part of its statutory authority and responsibility to analyze sentencing issues, including operation of the federal sentencing guidelines, and in accordance with Rule 5.2 of its Rules of Practice and Procedure, the Commission is seeking comment on possible priority policy issues for the amendment cycle ending May 1, 2007. Public comment should be received on or before September 1, 2006.
