"Reader-Friendly" Version of Amendments on Retroactivity (effective March 3, 2008)


On December 11, 2007, the Commission voted to give retroactive effect to the recent crack cocaine amendment and adopted other modifications to the policy statement covering retroactivity. This reader-friendly text combines the text of the two amendments to policy statement §1B1.10 [Reduction in Term of Imprisonment as a Result of Amended Guideline Range (Policy Statement)] and shows §1B1.10 as it appeared in a forthcoming supplement to the Guidelines Manual. Official text of the amendments will be posted on the Commission's website at www.ussc.gov and can be found in the Federal Register.
