Nicely done Ryan, "Federal"= "49 state"

Very nicely done, Ryan.  You went to a reliable reference material and
provided the appropriate information for anyone else to find where your
quote came from.
No "I've been told by someone I consider an expert" or " I remember hearing
somewhere" or " I am correct because I have believed this for a long time"

Again, very nicely done.  You are getting your money's worth out of college.
