Comment On The Nomination Of Judge William K. Sessions III To Be Chair Of the U.S. Sentencing Commission

“Vermonters know well the quality of service Judge Sessions has brought to the bench in Vermont, where he has served as a well-respected federal judge for more than 13 years.  I am pleased that President Obama has nominated him to serve as chair of the United States Sentencing Commission, where he has served with insight, experience and distinction for a decade.  I hope the Senate will again act unanimously to confirm this appointment, just as we did in 1999 when he was first nominated to serve on the Commission.”
