Goodlunk, This code will save your problem of fetching USA state names and abbreviations as per id

Check my controller code…Just put in your controller

@us_states = USStates.find(:all)

<% form_for :customer, @customer, :url => { :action => “new_application” } do |f| %>
<%= f.select :state_id,  @us_states.collect {|state| [ state.abbreviation, state.id ] } %>
<% end %>
