Rep. John J. LaFalce, D-Town of Tonawanda, has been re-elected chairman of the House Committee on Small Business.

"With the economy already in a slump and possibly already in a severe recession, Congress will have to pay even more attention to the needs of small business next year," LaFalce said.

He was re-elected chairman, a post he has held in the past two Congresses, by a vote of 218 to 32. He said he intends to hold hearings on the impact of franchising on the economy and whether new state or federal laws or regulations may be needed.
