The Commission has identified the following priorities: (1) Continuation of its multiyear examination of the structure of the guidelines post-Booker and consideration of legislative recommendations or guideline amendments to simplify the guidelines, while promoting proportionality and reducing sentencing disparities, and to account appropriately for the defendant’s role, culpability, and relevant conduct. (2) Continuation of its work with Congress and others to implement the recommendations of the Commission’s 2016 report to Congress, Career Offender Sentencing Enhancements, including its recommendations to revise the career offender directive at 28 U.S.C. 994(h) to focus on offenders who have committed at least one ‘‘crime of violence’’ and to adopt a uniform definition of ‘‘crime of violence’’ applicable to the guidelines and other recidivist statutory provisions. (3) Consideration of possible amendments to § 4B1.2 (Definitions of Terms Used in Section 4B1.1) to (A) allow courts to consider the actual conduct of the defendant, rather than only the elements of the offense (i.e., ‘‘categorical approach’’), in determining whether an offense is a crime of violence or a controlled substance offense; and (B) address various application issues, including the meaning of ‘‘robbery’’ and ‘‘extortion,’’ and the treatment of inchoate offenses and offenses involving an offer to sell a controlled substance. (4) Continuation of its work with Congress and others to implement the recommendations of the Commission’s 2011 report to Congress, Mandatory Minimum Penalties in the Federal Criminal Justice System—including its recommendations regarding the severity and scope of mandatory minimum penalties, consideration of expanding the ‘‘safety valve’’ at 18 U.S.C. 3553(f), and elimination of the mandatory ‘‘stacking’’ of penalties under 18 U.S.C. 924(c)—and preparation of a series of publications updating the data in the report. (5) Continuation of its comprehensive, multiyear study of recidivism, including the circumstances that correlate with increased or reduced recidivism.
