The New York Clearing House Association has mandated that member banks be able to present checks electronically by July 30.

Also, by Feb. 1, 1996, the clearing house is pushing member banks to send return notifications 24 hours earlier than they now do. The February deadline will enable banks to "learn about pending return items before noon of the day following transmission," said Henry Farrar, senior vice president with the association.
