The top local stories this evening from the KERA Newsroom: About one million Texans have signed up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act since enrollment efforts began in 2013. That might sound like a lot, but Texas still has the highest rate of uninsured in the country. 

North Texans love to spend money and we have the government data to prove it. This week the Bureau of Labor Statistics released data about consumer expenditures. KERA dives into the numbers.

And, the Venice Biennale is one of the art world's most prestigious exhibitions.  It's a big deal for the artists whose work is chosen. A Dallas artist's work is receiving attention at the international art fair.
