USSC public hearing next week to discuss crack retroactivity

Mark your calender, sentencing fans:  as noted on the US Sentencing Commission's website, "a public meeting of the Commission is scheduled for Tuesday, December 11, 2007, at 3:30 p.m., in the Mecham Conference Center, Thurgood Marshall Federal Judiciary Building, Washington, D.C."  This official notice provides a bit more background and this enticing agenda:

  • Possible Votes on Retroactivity
  • Adjourn

I think this means we could have a decision on crack retroactivity as early as next week.  But the word "possible" in the agenda, of course, might mean that the issue may not be settled that soon.
