    Most of the money went to administrative costs including salaries of state workers.
    Texas Energy and Environment blog reported:

    The state received millions of federal dollars from the economic-stimulus package to help poor Texans cut their energy bills, but by the end of last month, just seven homes had been weather-treated under the program.

    The state has spent $1.8 million of $163 million available over the past four months, with most of it going to administrative costs, such as the salaries of state workers.

    The weatherization program was a key element of the federal effort to revive the economy, billed as a quick way to create jobs, save energy and cut utility bills.

    Because of the conservative bullshit, we have been waiting since 1912. Wow, we really are rushing it.

    Totally non sequitur conservative illogic.
