New York's "wild card" banking law has been extended for two years, to Sept. 10, 2000.

The state first enacted a wild card law in August 1997, but it was to expire Sept. 10. Like similar statutes in 42 states, the law grants New York-chartered banks the same powers as federally chartered institutions.
