- That the crack cocaine guidelines should be set at a level that is not excessive, and is consistent with the spirit of the legislative change.
- That the guidelines change should be made retroactive in order to benefit offenders currently in prison.
- That the Commission should revise guidelines for other drug offenses as well in order to reduce excessively lengthy imprisonment.
