use hash from model in controller

I have a hash in my model and need to lookup keys from values in my controller Here’s the hash:
VENUE_STATE_TYPES =

[

[‘Alabama’, ‘AL’],

[‘Alaska’, ‘AK’],

]

Please stick to one thread per question, I've answered this separately.

Thanks Should I delete this post?

When you figure out how to delete an e-mail from everyone's in-box, you will have a long line of Senators and Congress(persons) at your door asking how. This is a mailing list, even if you interact with it through a Web site.
