Energy efficiency stimulus funds oversight is lacking say critics

A massive influx of federal funds to make low-income households more energy efficient has North Carolina state officials scrambling to make sure the money is spent properly. Critics warn that the prospect of distributing that kind of money could result in a major fiasco if monitoring is not stepped up. They point to past abuses of federal aid, welfare, bailouts and other well-intentioned programs with weak oversight.
