The Commission further requested comment regarding whether, if it amends Sec. 1B1.10(c) to include either amendment, it also should amend Sec. 1B1.10 to provide guidance to the courts on the procedure to be used when applying an amendment retroactively under 18 U.S.C. 3582(c)(2). The Commission is issuing this notice to advise the public that the period for public comment regarding retroactivity has been extended to November 1, 2007.
