    MONTPELIER - Vermont's Health Care commissioner is apologizing for not being more forthcoming with a legislative committee when he was explaining the details of a security breach in the system last month.

    Commissioner Mark Larson made the comments in a letter dated Sunday to state Rep. Mike Fisher, the chairman of the House Health Care Committee.

    In a statement Monday, Gov. Peter Shumlin said he was disappointed Larson was "anything less than fully cooperative and transparent," but he did not believe Larson meant to deceive the committee. House Speaker Shap Smith called Larson's Nov. 5 comments "troubling."

    Earlier this month, Larson was asked if anyone's information was compromised and he told the committee there had been a breach, but he did not say there had been unauthorized access to information.
