    Public urination law may change

    Just in time for the city's largest street party, a St. Louis alderman and tavern keeper is seeking to change the law against urinating in public.

    Alderman Ken Ortmann, with an eye toward next month's Mardi Gras celebration, introduced a bill that he hopes will lower the penalties for some instances of public urination.

    Public urination "does not uniformly constitute indecent exposure," Ortmann's bill states, and should not always be grouped with sex offenses and similar crimes.
