STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, OCT. 10, 2017.....As the House and Senate lurch closer towards long-promised changes to the criminal justice system, advocates and interest groups are turning up the pressure, trying to get a bill to their liking.

Black and Latino lawmakers will meet with Gov. Charlie Baker on Tuesday and then confer with the House chairwoman of the Judiciary Committee, Rep. Claire Cronin, on Thursday. Criminal justice reform is a top agenda item for both meetings. Tuesday's meeting with the governor is at 2 p.m. in the governor's office, according to a legislative aide.

A press conference is planned Thursday on a bill recommended by Senate Judiciary Committee members. Some prosecutors have been airing thoughts, and the Baker administration is developing feedback on the package of proposals.
