What am I missing here?

Glad to see Louisiana well represented in the Stimulus Bill, but are Alexandria
Baton Rouge
Bossier City
New Iberia
New Orleans
Shreveport the only cities represented? Where's Lafayette?

Update: I should have read the faq.

9. Why is my city not listed?

The data on this site comes from the U.S. Conference of Mayors' MainStreet Economic Recovery Report. If a city did not include its "shovel-ready" projects on that list, you won't find it here. However, this does not mean that cities that are not included here do not have projects they'd like to see funded. Once the stimulus bill passes, cites will make requests for federal grants, and we will likely see grants to projects not listed on this site.

So this site is somewhat informative, I guess, but has nothing to do with what the bill will eventually fund. Anyway, it's interesting to see that no one likes any of the programs, at least not those that are somewhere else.
