TRENTON - (AP) - Investors in New Jersey's 529 college savings plan will now have more money to put toward their children's college expenses.
    
The management fees for the New Jersey Better Educational Savings Trust (NJBEST) are being cut in half to help reduce administrative costs paid by plan participants.
