US Sentencing Commission slated to vote on "Johnson fix" guideline amendment and promulgate other proposals
As detailed in this official notice, the United States Sentencing Commission has "a public meeting of the Commission ... scheduled for Friday, January 8, 2016, at 1:00 p.m.... This meeting will be streamed live." Here is the agenda (with my emphasis added):
- Vote to Adopt August 2015 Meeting Minutes
- Report from the Chair
- Report from the Staff Director
- Possible Vote to Promulgate Proposed Crime of Violence Amendment
- Possible Vote to Publish Proposed Guideline Amendments and Issues for Comment
These last two agenda items could be a very big deal, depending on what the USSC has in the works.

Do you think their goal will be to find language that they think will recapture most of the offenses that were excluded when they agreed Johnson should be applied to the career offender residual definition?

Probably, but I think they will not have to crazy long of a list of enumerated offenses
