New resource available for tracing history of Guidelines provisions

Thanks to the National Sentencing Resource Counsel, you can now trace the history of any policy decision or guideline amendment promulgated by the United States Sentencing Commission by reviewing documents and materials from the public record of the United States Sentencing Commission that are not currently available on its website and are otherwise difficult to obtain. These include public comment (including public comment regarding the initial guideline development process), written hearing testimony from early amendment cycles (and some others), hearing transcripts (before 1997), and various reports. The website address is www.src-project.org.
