Comments to USSC on Retroactivity of the Criminal History Amendment (June 2023)

NACDL hereby responds to the Commission’s request for comment on the retroactive application of Part A of the 2023 Criminal History Amendment which limits, and, in some cases, eliminates status points under USSG § 4A1.1(d), and Part B, Subpart 1 of this year’s Criminal History Amendment, which amends USSG § 4C1.1 to provide for a two-level downward adjustment for “zero-point offenders.” NACDL endorses retroactive application for both provisions without limitation.
