MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — While states implement health insurance marketplaces this fall, Vermont is also eyeing a bigger goal that more fully embraces government-funded health care.

The state plans a 2017 launch of the nation's first universal health care system. It's a sort of a modified Medicare-for-all.

The plan is seen as especially ambitious in the current atmosphere surrounding health care in the United States, with some states and some in Congress balking at the federal health overhaul.

National experts say Vermont's plan has gone unnoticed amid the national debate over the federal law.

Democratic Gov. Peter Shumlin is continuing to vow to make Vermont a place where "health care is a right and not a privilege."

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont man accused of committing war crimes in his native Bosnia 21 years ago and lying to U.S. immigration authorities about them has been ordered held pending trial.

The Burlington Free Press reports a judge made that order Monday in the case of Edin Sakoc, citing a high risk to flee. A defense lawyer had said he expected he'd be released.

Sakoc lives in Burlington, Vermont's biggest city. He denies the charges in a two-count indictment.

The 54-year-old Bosnian Muslim is accused of raping a Serbian woman, aiding in the killings of two elderly women she had been caring for and burning the house where they were staying. He could face 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000 if convicted.
