CHICAGO -- The National Automatic Merchandising Association has submitted comments to the U.S. Department of the Treasury regarding proposed changes to currency.

The Treasury and Bureau of Engraving and Printing asked for comments on several proposed changes to currency relating to "Meaningful Access to United States Currency for Blind and Visually Impaired Persons."

In its comments, NAMA argues that a tactile feature on currency, such as Braille markings, is a good remedy, but that the cost of such a tactile feature could be considerable.

The vending association encouraged BEP to minimize potential costs and provide sufficient time for the vending industry to accommodate any physical currency changes. NAMA also said it opposes any currency changes that will unnecessarily burden the thousands of small businesses that operate vending machines.
