Judge Sesssions confirmed as new Chair of US Sentencing Commission
I am pleased to be able to report this Senate confirmation news: "Senators have unanimously confirmed ... William Sessions to be Chair of the United States Sentencing Commission." More details are available in this release from the USSC.
Because Judge Session was already a Vice-Chair of the USSC, this development is neither surprising nor likely to radically change the ways in which the USSC does business. Nevertheless, it is still notable and important than an Obama appointee is now officially in charge of Sentencing Commission.
