State Senator J. Chapman Petersen (D-34) proposed a bill to the State Senate that would make public urination a Class 4 misdemeanor with a fine of up to $250. Today, public urination violations are typically filed in Virginia as indecent exposure, a Class 1 misdemeanor. Petersen offered the bill at the behest of a northern Virginia homeowners group whose members have complained about local students urinating on their shrubs. Members bypassed Petersen’s proposal.
