Later Monday, Gov. Peter Shumlin is scheduled to brief the health care committees from the House and Senate about the progress of Vermont Health Connect, the office helping to implement the health overhaul efforts in the state.

Legislative leaders have said the two top issues they expect to be grappling with in this year's session include closing an expected $70 million budget shortfall and helping combat the abuse of opiate drugs, which police say is driving crime and ruining lives across the state.
