Nuveen Investments, a leading global provider of investment services to institutions as well as individual investors, today announced that the Nuveen Texas Quality Income Municipal Fund (NYSE: NTX) has filed an initial registration statement to establish an equity shelf program.

The fund’s primary investment objective is to provide current income exempt from regular federal income tax consistent with the fund’s investment policies. The fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing at least 80 percent of its managed assets in municipal securities and other related investments the income which is exempt from regular federal income tax. The municipal securities in which the fund invests are generally issued by the State of Texas, a municipality of Texas, or a political subdivision of either, and pay interest that is exempt from regular federal income tax, although the interest may be subject to the federal alternative minimum tax.*
