HB232 by Guillen (Relating to allowing certain minors convicted of certain alcohol offenses to perform community service instead of attending an alcohol awareness program.), As Introduced
The bill would amend the Alcoholic Beverage Code to allow a court to require a minor defendant to perform community service that the court determines appropriate for rehabilitation instead of an alcohol awareness program if a program is not available in the defendant's area.
No significant impact on state correctional populations, programs, or workload is anticipated from any provisions of the bill that authorize or require a change in the sanctions applicable to adults convicted of felony crimes.
According to the Office of Court Administration, as the statute pertains to offenses not prosecuted in state courts, no significant fiscal impact to the state judiciary is anticipated.
