Circular
Board Announces Restructuring of Check Processing in Tenth, Eleventh Districts
February 12, 2008
Circular No. 11934

The Federal Reserve Board has approved amendments to Appendix A of Regulation CC that reflect the restructuring of the Federal Reserve's check processing operations in the Tenth and Eleventh Districts.

Appendix A provides a routing number guide that helps depository institutions determine the maximum permissible hold periods for most deposited checks.

As of April 19, 2008, the head office of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City no longer will process checks, and banks currently served by that office will be reassigned to the head office of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas.

To ensure that the information in Appendix A accurately describes the structure of check processing operations within the Federal Reserve System, the final rule deletes the reference in Appendix A to the head office of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City and reassigns the routing numbers listed thereunder to the head office of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas.

To coincide with the effective date of the underlying check processing changes, the amendments are effective April 19, 2008.
