There is another possibility for the confusion on state name abbreviations. _The Associated Press Stylebook_, used by many newspapers, is the source of seeing everything from two, three, and four letter abbreviations to full state names spelled out.

Check under abbreviations at the following link (second page) to see what AP suggests for state names. Note that AP uses Pa. for Pennsylvania.
