When registering, U.S. State/Territory of owner is also applied to contact
When registering a new data set, dropdown menus for "U.S. State or Territory" appear both in the Principal Data Set Owner section and in the Data Set Contact section. However, whatever value is submitted under Owner is evidently getting applied to Contact as well, and the value (if any) selected under Contact is ignored. This is true even if no state was selected under Owner, in which case no state is recorded for Contact.
This was observed both for the ESA and NCEAS registries.
