Supporters of a Senate bill that would overhaul the state's criminal justice system are turning their attention to the House.

The group says the Senate bill — approved on a 27-10 vote last week after marathon debate — will reduce the number of people who are sent to jail and get more defendants into drug treatment.
The Massachusetts chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union praised senators for seeking elimination of most mandatory sentences for drug offenders.

It's unclear when the House will act on criminal justice reform.
