Two separate and legal meanings
Texas vs. White, yr. 1862, US Supreme Court
Small “s” consist of land people and government.
Small “s” is a fiction created by the people.
I am a part of the small “s” state.
I am not part of the capital “S” State.
Capital “S” is federal government.
Capital “S” occupies specific lands, and is not lands, small “s” is lands.
Sooooo when reading legislative law they may be talking about the laws that apply on Nebraska lands (state), or they may be talking about land in Nebraska that are Federally controlled (State).
Also pay attention to the “Terms Defined” / “Definitions” section in the legislative bills to understand who/what the written laws apply to. For example “in this state” though it is three words is a singular term used in most 50 states as a federal possession.
>>>Oregon Revised Statutes – (ORS) that defines “in this state” for all the sections that don’t define it:
323.010 Definitions for ORS 323.005 to 323.482. As used in ORS 323.005 to 323.482, unless the context requires otherwise:
(8) “In this state” means within the exterior limits of the State of Oregon and includes all territory within these limits owned by or ceded to the United States of America.
