Legislation before state lawmakers in New York would prohibit magazine publishers from automatically renewing a customer's subscription without their consent.
 
The bill is an attempt to protect consumers by outlawing the practice by some publishers of requiring a reader to notify them if they do not want their subscription renewed.
 
Identical versions of the legislation have been introduced in both the Senate and the Assembly.
 
No votes on the legislation have been scheduled.
