In general, matters that lie entirely within state borders are the exclusive concern of state governments. These include internal communications; regulations relating lớn property, industry, business, and public utilities; the state criminal code; and working conditions within the state. There are many areas of overlap between state và federal jurisdictions. In recent years, the federal government has assumed broader responsibility in such matters as health, education, welfare, transportation, and housing & urban development. The constitutions of the various states differ in some details but generally follow a pattern similar to that of the federal Constitution, including a statement of the rights of the people and a plan for organizing the government. On such matters as the operation of businesses, banks, public utilities, & charitable institutions, state constitutions are often more detailed và explicit than the federal constitution.
