New Majority Whip weighs in on legislative agenda


 Beckley (WVVA) West Virginia's newest Majority Whip is weighing in on his priorities ahead of the 2015 legislative session.

The day after the November elections, Sen. Daniel Hall's history party switch gave Republicans control of the legislature for the first time since 1930's.

In November, Hall was named the Republican Party's Majority Whip.

"It's a big honor but it's also a huge responsibility. There's been a lot of changes but now it's time to get down to work," said Hall.

On Friday, he was in Beckley to talk to residents about his agenda in January. "We've got a number of different initiatives we're going to take up on the business climate in West Virginia. It's all about jobs and the economy. We want to do things do spur it along."

 In addition to Majority Whip, Hall was also named Chairman of Agriculture and Rural Development Committee and Labor Committee.
