Legislators in Montpelier are hoping to adjourn by Saturday, May 7. As they try to wrap up this session, the fate of many bills hangs in the balance.

House Speaker Shap Smith provides an outlook on the budget, the tax bill and the governor's health care bill. And he discloses his personal "must pass" list.

Also, gas prices have jumped by $1.30 a gallon since October 1. Congressman Peter Welch discusses what is causing this increase and solutions that would stem the rising cost of petroleum.

Plus, we listen back to the voices in the news this week.
