Stimulus Weatherization in Delaware "riddled with problems"

Investigators from the federal Department of Energy audited about three dozen weatherization projects in the Delaware program and found problems with all of them, said Henry Smith, deputy secretary of the Department of Health and Social Services.

State and federal officials said they are now redesigning administrative controls in the program and re-inspecting about 1,100 homes that got $3 million worth of insulation, doors, windows, caulking and other weatherization measures since April 2009.
