The United States Sentencing Commission has scheduled a public hearing for Wednesday, July 19, 2023, from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. (EDT). The hearing 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) (Notice available here).

The purpose of the public hearing is for the Commission to gather testimony from invited witnesses concerning whether the Commission should designate as retroactive Parts A and B of the 2023 Criminal History Amendment. Because these two provisions reduce the sentencing range for some offenders, the Commission is statutorily required to determine whether either or both of these parts of the amendment should be applied retroactively to previously sentenced, imprisoned defendants.

The hearing will also be livestreamed.
