Officials as of Thursday have yet to confirm a single enrollment in the exchange, part of the federal health care reform effort.
The state health care commission also was told that only about half of the 68 "marketplace guides" being hired to teach people about the exchange and help them enroll have been fully certified, with many still awaiting completion of federal criminal background checks.

The website couldn't handle the volume of people trying to create accounts all at once.
