WASHINGTON (AP) -- The government says it has just $15 billion left to spend from the first $350 billion pot of financial bailout money.
The Treasury Department says $335 billion has been allocated from the first half of the $700 billion program, which was enacted on Oct. 3.
Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, who is overseeing the program, is weighing tapping the second $350 billion.
The main goal of the program is aimed at getting financial institutions to lend money more freely again, which would help revive the economy.
