State Abbreviation List

[Updated 9 / 18 / 2013: Now you can now get all 50 states plus DC and all possessions]

I couldn't find a list of State abbreviations that I could quickly use as options for a drop-down list for an address component for a project I'm working on. So I have a complete list of the 50 states in excel, csv, arrays, and text format. See the links

Only the 50 States

(does not include D.C. or U.S. Possessions)
