How do I setup Free Shipping for Lower 48 States and weight-based rates for everyone else?

I’m trying to setup Magento in a similar manner to how I have my ZenCart site setup:  I would like to offer Free Shipping to the Lower 48 Continental US, but have International and Hawai & Alaska be charged shipping based on the weight of the products they are purchasing.

How do I set that up?

I need this functionality as well. I want the continental US to have the opportunity at Free Shipping, but charge for Alaska and Hawaii.

I do have one solution that may work for you (it worked for me).

Create a shopping cart rule with no code so it will be auto applied. For me the free shipping is if the order is over $100 so i have one condition that the subtotal is over $100, next i have a condition that the user has to be in the United States which still does include Alaska and Hawaii so I added two more conditions that the user state is not Alaska and the user state is not Hawaii and the action is “free shipping” with the “for shipment with matching items” option.

I did search and search for a solution within the config -> shipping settings but didn’t find one so this seems like the only fix at the moment.
