The U.S.S.C. 2018 Federal Sentencing Guidelines will remain in effect at least through November 1, 2022, because the 2021 amendment deadlines have already passed- due to lack of a Commission Members required for a quorum to pass amendments. The 2018 Guidelines do not encompass changes made from enactment of the First Step Act of 2018.

This is a very large desktop version, easier to read with larger font than other small font versions out there in the universe. This book is 8.27" x 11.69" x 1.81" comprising 724 pages.

Numerous law students have expressed a desire to purchase a low cost version of the Guidelines, so here you go.

There are several (noteworthy) 2021 Bills in the US Senate and US House that can be monitored now- substantially amending, enhancing, supplementing provisions of the First Step Act of 2018, the Second Chance Act of 2018, and 18 U.S.C. § 3582. Those 2021 Bills are: 1.) S.1014 - First Step Implementation Act of 2021; 2.) S.312 - COVID–19 Safer Detention Act of 2021; 3.) H.R. 3669- COVID–19 Safer Detention Act of 2021 (Same as S. 312); and 4.) S.601 - Prohibiting Punishment of Acquitted Conduct Act of 2021. These Bills are gaining momentum and should have enough bipartisan support to result in changes, prior to the 2022 mid-term elections.

The Sponsors of those Bills are Senator Dick Durbin, (D-IL) and Representative Jerry Nadler, (D-NY) in case anybody else wants to sent them a letter in support of this important prison reform legislation. Federal Sentencing Alliance has recently endorsed this important legislation and offered any support necessary to assist in the passage of these Bills.
