"Pacific Life has determined that it will not renew its participation in the Montana Family Education Savings Program (MFESP), which is set to expire at the beginning of June 2011. [...] Effective February 1, 2010, new applications for the MFESP may only be made by Montana residents purchasing shares directly from Pacific Life Funds."
