John Vio- la, D-Newark, as Majority Whip. Senate The Delaware State Senate Re- publican Caucus selected Sen. Gary Simpson, R-Milford, to re- main Senate Minority Leader. He has served as Senate Minori- ty Leader for the past four years. Simpson said the top priority for his caucus - and the entire Legislature - is the economy. "I think the greatest challenge we'll face this year is balancing the budget, We've got some taxes that are due to sunset this year," Simpson said, referring to in- creases in state personal income, gross receipts, franchise and es- tate taxes. "We've got to make sure those taxes are not extend- ed in order to put more money in the hands of Delaware's people." Also during the caucus' first meeting since the election, Lavelle, R-Sharpley, was selected to serve as Minority Whip. Lavelle, the former House Mi- nority Leader, said he looks for- ward to working with his new caucus members, the governor, and the entire building to move the state forward. "We are facing a lot of signifi- cant issues," he said. "Such as is- sues of finance, and we have ex- piring tax increases that need to be dealt with. We continue to have an economy that needs to be improved." Hocker, R-Ocean View, the for- mer House Minority Whip, also joined the Senate this year, along with Sen. Brian Pettyjohn, R- Georgetown, and Sen. Ernie Lopez, R-Lewes. In the Senate, Republicans picked up one seat in the elec- tion to cut the Democrats' lead to 13-8. Senators will meet Wednes- day, Dec. 5, to consider guberna- torial appointments requiring Senate approval.
