FILE - In this March 16, 2016 file photo, Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, left, confers with Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas. on Capitol Hill in Washington. Hopes for overhauling the nation’s criminal justice system have faded in Congress this year, undercut by a rash of summer shootings involving police and the pressure of election-year politics. Republicans, including Cornyn and Lee, had joined forces with Democrats in hopes of revising the 1980s and ‘90s-era federal “tough on crime” laws by reducing some mandatory sentences for low-level drug offenders and giving judges greater discretion in sentencing. The goal is to reduce overcrowding in the nation’s prisons and save taxpayer dollars. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)WASHINGTON (AP) — Hopes for overhauling the nation's criminal justice system have faded in Congress this year, undercut by a rash of summer shootings involving police and the pressure of election-year politics.
