if you set ID attribute, if better/safest :

var shipState = document.getElementById("ShipStateId");
var custState = document.getElementById("CustStateId");
shipState.selectedIndex = custState.selectedIndex;

<select id="ShipStateId" name="SHIP_STATE"

and

<select id="CustStateId" name="CUST_STATE"

Additionaly, please double check the case of field attributes (name, id of form and dropdown)
