US Sentencing Commission schedules meeting for April 5, 2023, for promulgation of proposed guideline amendments

Via email I learned of the official announcement of the official public meeting when we can expect the US Sentencing Commission to vote to promulgate its first set of new amendments in five years.  The announcement is here on the Commission's website, and reads as follows:

Pursuant to Rule 3.2 of the Rules of Practice and Procedure of the United States Sentencing Commission, a public meeting of the Commission was scheduled for Wednesday, April 5, 2023, at 2:00 p.m.  The meeting will be held at the Thurgood Marshall Federal Judiciary Building, One Columbus Circle, N.E., in the Commissioners' Conference Room of Suite 2-500 (South Lobby).  The meeting will be streamed live and recorded.

The agenda follows:

  • Vote to Adopt January 2023 Meeting Minutes
  • Report from the Chair
  • Report from the Staff Director
  • Vote to Promulgate Proposed Amendments
  • Adjourn

As highlighted in some of the prior posts below, there has been significant debate about the significant draft proposed amendments that were released by the USSC earlier this year. I am going to be very interested in seeing how the Commissioners settle on final proposed amendments (which will provide some insight as to how the various Commissioners are settling into their roles).
