ness  loans  in their communities with both conventional and Small Busi-
ness Administration loans; and
  WHEREAS, Small businesses are a crucial  element  in  the  growth  and
success of the economy in New York State, and community banks are impor-
tant contributors to the success of small businesses; and
  WHEREAS,  Although  community  banks  have decreased in their numbers,
they remain dedicated to serving the needs  of  their  communities,  not
only  with  financial  services  but,  most importantly, through partic-
ipation in community-based activities; and
  WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body  to  recognize  that
community  banks  are  a  critical  element to the economy of this great
Empire State; now, therefore, be it
