Don't know 'bout VA. but IL. does and what I've done in the past was use a small 9V battery. The + connected to the light wiring, alligator clip connected to the -, clip it to some metal part of the bike, whala.... light works, not long or bright but what's the chance of a LEO checking you out anyway. If you are looking for a way to comply this may help.
I'm not saying there should be capital punishment for stupidity, but let's take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself.
