Lindsey Tucker, Deputy Commissioner of the Department of Vermont Health Access, speaking to a group in Newport in March 2013,

Vermont has received $250 million in federal funds over the last eighteen months to set up its health care exchange.

Friday on Vermont Edition, we examine how that money is being spent, and what work remains to meet the deadline of launching the state's exchange by the end of 2013. Our guests are Mark Larson, commissioner of the Department of Vermont Health Access, and Robin Lunge, the governor's director of the health care reform.

Also in the program, a look at major stories in the week's news with reporter Pete Hirschfeld of the Rutland Herald and Barre-Montpelier Times Argus.
