WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize that  the
quality  and  character of life in the communities across New York State
are reflective of the concerned and dedicated efforts  of  organizations
and  individuals  who  devote themselves to the welfare of the community

  WHEREAS,  The  Somos  Spring  Conference,  established  in  1987,  and
attended  by  more than 7,000 people each year, is the largest gathering
of Puerto Rican/Hispanic civic and political leaders in New  York  State
and  is  a  significant  public  policy  vehicle for the more than three
million Hispanics living in New York State; and
  WHEREAS, The Somos Spring Conference also provides an  opportunity  to
recognize the contributions of Puerto Rican and Hispanic individuals and
organizations; and
  WHEREAS,  The  Somos  Spring  Conference has adopted its theme of "The
Time is Now"; and
  WHEREAS, This Legislative Body has come together to recognize  Hispan-
ics and Latinos who have significantly contributed to community develop-
ment in New York State; and
  WHEREAS,  It  is  the  custom  of this Legislative Body that those who
enhance the well-being and vitality of their community and have shown  a
long  and  sustained  commitment to excellence certainly have earned the
recognition and applause of all the citizens of this great Empire State;
now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause  in  its  deliberations  to
commemorate  the  26th  Annual  Somos Spring Conference to be held March
22-24; and be it further
