Roberts investing in children's college funds

WASHINGTON (AP) — The only member of the Supreme Court with school-age children is saving furiously for their college educations.

Financial disclosure reports for the justices that were made available Friday show that Chief justice John Roberts plowed at least $100,000 into a college savings plan last year. Roberts and his wife, Jane, had previously saved more than $250,000 in the college accounts for their 13-year-old children, Jack and Josie.

Roberts is using Utah's Educational Savings Plan, even though he would get a tax break as a Maryland resident if he had invested in the Maryland plan.

The federal judiciary released paper copies of the reports. Disclosures for the president and members of Congress are posted online.
