Constitutions

The constitution of the United States of America is the supreme law of the United States.  The constitution provides the framework for the organization of the United States government and for the relationship of the federal government to the states, to citizens, and to all people within country.

In the United States, each state has its own constitution.  The state constitutions are modeled after the federal constitution.  The state constitutions outline the structure of state government.  The constitutions establish a bill of rights, an executive branch headed by a governor, a state legislature, and state courts.  The state constitutions are briefly described in the following links.
