 New York State Senate Democratic Leader Malcolm A. Smith will preside
 over the opening bell.

 In November of 2006, Senator Smith was unanimously elected State
 Senate Minority Leader by his fellow Democratic Senators. Smith and
 his Conference are two seats short of winning the Senate majority.

 A businessman by trade, Senator Smith brings both his unique skills
 and diverse background from past experience in the private and public
 sectors to the State Senate, where he has served the 14th Senatorial
 District since 2000. Senator Smith has been a major proponent in
 bringing jobs and opportunity throughout the state.
