Interesting NCSC survey projects

I have learned at this morning's NASC session that the National Center for State Court (NCSC), which already has this great sentencing resource page, will soon be publishing the results of two intriguing survey about attitudes concerning sentencing reform.  One survey posed a series of pointed questions to state chief justices and court administrators; the other posed a series of general questions to members of the public.

I will blog more about these surveys once they are available on-line (which should be soon).  In the meantime, anyone interested in this research should know that Steve Chanenson and I may try to organize a forthcoming issue of the Federal Sentencing Reporter around these surveys and what should be taken away from them (especially during an election season).
