Simply populate the shipmode column with valid choices for each state, then 
modify the shipping selector code in include/checkout/shipping_address:

          <SELECT NAME=mv_shipmode>
             mode=|[data table=state key='[default state A_STATE_CODE]' 

A_STATE_CODE could be your state of origin or just about any other state 
that makes sense as a starting point, until they specify theirs.
