Oregon State Government The states of the United States of America are among the basic political units of the federal system as defined in the Constitution. They perform all of the domestic tasks usually assigned traditional nation-states in other parts of the world. Basic rights are given force of law in state constitutions and legislative form by state assemblies. State governments are responsible for defining criminal and civil procedures for administering justice and settling disputes among citizens.
As the principal authority of a specific region, state governments fill a primary role in the provisioning and administering of internal improvements, such as roads, waterworks, and schools, either directly or indirectly (through counties and cities), as may be directed by the specific provisions of their respective constitutions. They may also grant articles of incorporation to both public and private enterprises. Their central role in local internal matters developed out of their existence as distinct political entities that predated the ratification of the Constitution in 1789.
