Federal versus State Policy ComparisonNameClassDateProfessorFederal versus State Policy Comparison When America first developed a centralized government it resulted in the development of three separate branches of government and the creation of the US Constitution. The three branches of government are the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government. Public policy is the result of the legislative process and the approval of the executive branch while the judicial branch is responsible for judicial review of the public policy is established. Public policy is the legislation that is created in response to social issues that arise in society. Federal public policy involves the entire nation while state public policy only pertains to the citizens within the boundaries of the individual state. Public policy is a demand by members in the public and special interests groups to ensure that issues in society are corrected as well as a response by the government when reform or change is needed. Public policy is a system of laws, regulatory measures, courses of action, and funding priorities concerning a given topic promulgated by a governmental entity or its representatives (Kilpatrick, 2000). Public policy is shaped by the needs of members of society. For example when the recidivism rate of states such as Washington and California spun out of control the response to the public's outrage was to create the Three Strike legislation
