Comment: Just to add the Legal aspect,

(See in situ)


Just to add the Legal aspect,

Just to add the Legal aspect, the term "DOMESTIC" OFTEN refers to the "territorial jurisdiction" of the UNITED STATES and excludes the 50 states of the Union. I know this is a legal technicality, but when you are dealing with politicians, they are all either attorneys, AND/OR have a team of Attorneys telling them what to say.

For example:

    The Clean Air Act (42 U.S.C. 7401 et seq.) is amended by adding at
    the end the following:

    ``TITLE VII--CREDIT FOR VOLUNTARY GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSION MITIGATION
    ACTIONS

    ``SEC. 701. DEFINITIONS.

    ``In this title:

    ``(2) Domestic.--The term `domestic' means within the
    territorial jurisdiction of the United States.
