The RSOL of Virginia stopped by Senator Petersen’s office and asked if this bill would require anyone convicted of public urination to register as a sex offender as states like Alabama do.

The RSOL of Virginia has received written confirmation that this bill will NOT require registration as a sex offender for anyone convicted of public urination.
