Abstract:     
The shock waves created by the Feeney Amendment have reverberated not only through the press, but also through all the institutions and groups involved with federal sentencing. The legal, political, and practical impact of the Feeney Amendment is far-reaching. Volume 16, issue 2 of the Federal Sentencing Reporter takes stock of the Feeney Amendment's many facets and starts examining the varied ways in which the Amendment has reshaped the federal sentencing landscape. This article serves as an overview of the discussion and considers the Feeney Amendment's effects on plea bargaining and sentencing dynamics.
