*The ICL, according to the methods used by S&P for rating local and regional governments (LRG), is not a rating but a means for assessing the intrinsic solvency of an LRG on the premise that there is no ceiling to the sovereign rating. The ICL shows the results of the combination of the assessment of the LRG's individual credit-profile with the institutional framework it operates under.]
