Administration and Enforcemnet

All About The Executive Branch

The executive branch is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the constitution and laws passed by the legislative branch.

Associates of The Executive Branch

The governor is the chief executive officer of the state, although the governor shares control of the state’s executive branch with a large number of other elected officials. The executive officer administers the programs and operations of state government, and therefore most directly serves the people. It provides direct services such as medical care for the poor, regulates activities such as hazardous waste disposal, supervises the provision of services by local government such as education, and promotes the state to attract new businesses. The executive branch provides support functions necessary to fulfill these responsibilities, such as purchasing, personnel, and budgeting.
