Legislative countdown: Health care

Burlington, Vermont – May 3, 2011

WCAX News Reporter Kristin Carlson spoke with Senator Claire Ayer Tuesday, about a health care compromise on single-payer health care legislation.

By federal law, the state has to set up a health benefits exchange, so lawmakers are gearing up to do that, getting the data they need to decide what's in the plan and what's not in it, said Ayer.

"But we are going to try to institute some cost-saving measures," she said.

However, she pointed out that they may not see those right away.
