Delaware state officials say state aid is possible to keep the General Motors plant near Newport open, but it must lead to new production. Economic Development Director Alan Levin said Gov. Jack Markell spoke with GM Chief Executive Fritz Henderson on Tuesday and mentioned possible aid.

Levin said any aid would need to come with a guarantee it would eventually lead to new production.

Nearly 550 employees remain at the plant, which builds the Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Sky. Both brands are being dropped by GM, which is expected to enter bankruptcy. GM is expected to announce Monday which plants it will close.
