Pennsylvania is dropping the surcharge it has imposed on investors' contributions to its 529 prepaid college savings plan, which it expects will save investors between 1.8% and 12.6% on their contributions, The Wall Street Journal reports.

However, investors must still pay a $10 to $50 enrollment fee and, unless they sign up for monthly direct deposits, a $25 annual fee.
