Vanguard has decided to indefinitely put off the launch of three new municipal-bond index funds and exchange-traded funds.

Vanguard filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission to withdraw its application to launch mutual fund and ETF shares for Vanguard Short-Term Municipal Bond Index, Vanguard Intermediate-Term Municipal Bond Index, and Vanguard Long-Term Municipal Bond Index. Vanguard had filed to launch these offerings, which were to track benchmarks in the S&P National AMT-Free Municipal Bond Index series, in June 2010.
