CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia's college savings plan has topped the $2 billion mark in financial assets.

State Treasurer John Perdue joined legislative leaders Friday in announcing the milestone for the SMART529 program. Perdue said the $2 billion mark is evidence that more West Virginians are investing in the future of their children.

Established 11 years ago, SMART529 has more than 120,000 account owners. The announcement was made in recognition of higher education day at the state Legislature.
