WASHINGTON — The House voted unanimously late Monday to repeal the nearly 20-year-old requirement that automated-teller machines have physical placards notifying users of fees.

The bill co-sponsored by Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer, R-Mo., and Rep. David Scott, D-Ga., was approved by a 371-0 margin. Under the legislation — which has been one of the industry's top lobbying priorities in recent months — banks, credit unions and other ATM operators would still be required to notify customers of any fees via an on-screen notice. Yet inclusion of a physical sign, which many find to be superfluous, would not be required.
