Nov 21 - Standard & Poor's Ratings Services today confirmed its ratings on
14 bonds fully supported by letters of credit (LOCs) due to the extension of the
LOC expiration dates for each bond.

Changes to our ratings on the bonds can result from, among other things, 
changes to our ratings on the LOC provider, the expiration or termination of 
the LOCs, or amendments to the transactions' terms. 

The complete ratings list is available in "LOC-Supported Bond Ratings 
Confirmed Due To Extended LOC Expiration Dates," published today on the Global 
Credit Portal on RatingsDirect. The list is also available on Standard & 
Poor's Web site, at www.standardandpoors.com. On the home page, under Ratings 
Resources, click on Ratings Actions and then select Structured Finance.


SEC Rule 17g-7 requires an NRSRO, for any report accompanying a credit rating 
relating to an asset-backed security as defined in the Rule, to include a 
description of the representations, warranties and enforcement mechanisms 
available to investors and a description of how they differ from the 
representations, warranties and enforcement mechanisms in issuances of similar 
securities. The Rule applies to in-scope securities initially rated (including 
preliminary ratings) on or after Sept. 26, 2011.
