The article focuses on registration of non-bank ATMs. It reports that lawmakers in two New York counties are latest to seek registration of non-bank ATMs. In a move legislators call necessary to protect consumers from identity theft, two New York counties passed laws requiring retailers to register private, non-bank ATMs. Though New York state legislators rejected nonbank ATM regulation last year, the counties join a handful of states that closely regulate non-bank ATMs. ATM owners can download registration forms from the county's Web site. The county's Department of Consumer Protection's Weight and Measures Division will keep a database of registered machines, which will be identified with a decal, and enforce the law in cooperation with Department of Public Safety.
