There was $1.3 billion dollars in the fund when Jindal took office. Less $100 million to pay off supporters with the Morganza to the Gulf levee. That's $1.2 billion. Less $259 million for these projects. Thats $941 million. The article accounts for only $414 million. Where is the rest of the money,$527 million? Piyush "Billion dollar Slush Fund Bobby" got a lot of explaining to do.
