DALLAS - Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal went to Washington, D.C., to meet with the state's congressional delegation on Tuesday to advance the case for millions of federal dollars in reimbursement for its expenses and losses related to Hurricane Gustav.

The state has already spent at least $383.9 million on preparing for the storm and cleaning up after it hit the state on Sept. 1. Jindal said that estimate did not include many costs in the 35 affected parishes, including at least $100 million in damage to state facilities.
