NASC or Bust
Off to the National Association of Sentencing Commissions conference in Philadelphia. Won't have anything posted for a few days, but should have much to say when we return. The last couple of conferences have been Blakely/Booker heavy, which was important but probably stalled a lot of the unrelated policy stuff we should have been doing. This conference features sessions that might, might, get us on the way to reinvigorating and redefining what commissions are supposed to be doing. Even if it doesn't, that will be a major topic when we get back. But I have definite hopes. Wish us luck. See you Wednesday or Thursday.
