Bonding Neutral to Ground...

...only at the meter box, rather than the separate panel box in the house. What is the reasoning behind that? Thanks!

Please ask your question differently.

The neutral and the ground are bonded together at one location. It may be at the meter, or it may be at the main panel.

you may have answered that for me....

... it must be a local code to only have it bonded at the meter panel, rather than the house main.
I'm more familier with how the stuff works than I am with codes.

I'm no master, but I always thought it to be a matter of only having a single contact to ground rather than multiple pathways.
