(Salem, OR)  --  Governor John Kitzhaber and members of the state Legislature say they want to do away with Cover Oregon.  The "Portland Tribune" reports that if the Cover Oregon board doesn't vote to transfer its functions to other state and federal agencies, the governor and lawmakers will take action next year to dissolve the state health-insurance exchange.  A website failure has cost the state hundreds of millions of dollars, and has led to competing lawsuits by the state and the prime contractor for the website, Oracle Corporation.  The board may vote later this month on whether to disband.
