Victims who were injured in the 35W bridge collapse and families of the 13 people killed can file for compensation from a nearly $37 million fund created by the Legislature. A panel of three attorneys will decide who gets some of the money, and how much they get.

Morning Edition host Cathy Wurzer talked with Susan Holden, chair of that panel.
