Nevada Assembly Bill 416: Authorizing courts to order community service in lieu of fees.

Nevada AB 416 clarifies that community service credits can be applied toward outstanding fines and fees, and provides that community service hours will be credited against debt at a rate of $10 per hour or the state’s minimum wage, whichever is higher. Nevada’s minimum wage is set to increase to $12 per hour by 2024. The bill also provides that any fine or fee not collected within 8 years is deemed “uncollectible.”
