is no longer singing "My Way", at least with regard to its 529 plan. The state has decided to issue an RFP for its 529 plan, Joe Hurley, ceo for SavingforCollege.com, confirmed for the MutualFundWire.com.

Hurley noted that under its current system the New Jersey plan was not open to non-New Jersey residence.
