BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Gov. Bobby Jindal's latest financial disclosure report, released Thursday, shows his $127,592-a-year state salary provided the main source of income for he and his wife in 2012.

Jindal's yearly report was filed with the state Board of Ethics by the May deadline that is required.

It doesn't show net worth.

The report shows the couple also received income from capital gains and dividends paid from nine different investment sources - but it doesn't offer specific amounts, instead providing the information in financial ranges.

For example, the report indicates that Jindal received between $5,000 and $24,999 in dividends and capital gains from a Fidelity mutual fund.

Besides his state salary, the total income Jindal and his wife, Supriya, could have received last year under the ranges reported to the ethics board was up to $105,000.

Jindal and his wife bought and sold investments. The couple also invested money in Louisiana START, a college savings program, for each of their three children.

Jindal, in his second term in office, doesn't list any liabilities over $10,000 and said he had no property exceeding $2,000 in value. He and his family live in the governor's mansion and don't own a separate home.

The governor reported that he has no investment holdings.

The couple both sat on non-profit advisory boards in 2012. Jindal was chair of the Southern Regional Education Board and a trustee of the Louisiana Southern Growth Policies Board.

Supriya Jindal was an advisory board member for a specialty magazine group called Parenting Magazine Mom's Congress, Tulane University's President's Council and the Special Olympics Gold Medal Commission.

She also was president of her own charitable foundation, the Supriya Jindal Foundation for Louisiana Children, which seeks to expand technology at state schools.
