Synopsis As Introduced Amends the Criminal and Traffic Assessment Act. Provides that before the court orders an assessment, the court shall make a determination of the defendant's ability to pay the assessment. Provides that if the court determines that the defendant is unable to pay the assessment, the court may reduce the assessment or waive the assessment in the court's discretion. Deletes language providing that one hour of public or community service shall be equivalent to $4 of assessment. Provides instead that one hour of public or community service shall be equivalent to the value of one hour of work at the State minimum wage or the minimum hourly wage in the municipality where the defendant resides, whichever is greater. Requires the Director of Labor to publish an up-to-date list of the Illinois minimum wage and the minimum wages of each municipality in the State that has enacted a minimum wage that is greater than the State minimum wage. Provides that the Director of Labor shall send the published minimum wage list and updates to the Administrative Office of the Illinois Courts to be provided to each judicial circuit in the State.
