A number of high-profile bills will be emerging from committee in the Vermont House in the coming weeks, including a state budget that includes cuts to human services and the governor's health care bill that would lay the groundwork for a single-payer system. House Speaker Shap Smith discusses the committee work on these and other key pieces of legislation.

Also in the program, Governor Peter Shumlin has several challenges ahead as lawmakers face the toughest work of the legislative session. We get perspective on Shumlin's roll in key issues from political analyst Eric Davis, professor emeritus at Middlebury College.

And we listen back to some of the voices in this week's news.
