PORTLAND, OR - Technology giant Oracle Corp. is pulling nearly two-thirds of its software developers from Oregon's troubled health insurance exchange project, even though the public still can't use the website to get coverage in one sitting and other key functions are unfinished.  

Cover Oregon spokesman Michael Cox said Thursday that 100 Oracle developers will leave this week, with 65 remaining.  

The cutbacks come after the online enrollment system was rolled out last week to insurance agents and community organizations.  

Cox says Cover Oregon is focusing on fixes to that system, with the hope of launching to the general public before the current enrollment period ends March 31st. No date has been set.  

Cox says work on other website features is on hold, so fewer developers are needed.
