The investment seeks as high a level of current interest income exempt from federal income tax as is consistent with the relative stability of capital. Normally, the fund invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus the amount of borrowings, if any, for investment purposes) in investment grade municipal bonds with a maturity of more than one year, the interest on which is exempt from regular federal income tax.
