Texas government and the national government share many structural similarities. However, there are some very unique differences between them. One of the reasons is because Texas developed many more constitutions than the national government did â€“ and those constitutions were influenced by Texasâ€™ relationship with the other nations that at one point ruled over Texas. As Texas joined the United States, and then the Confederacy, and then the Union, again, there were revisions of the Texas Constitution. The Texas Constitution of today was authored in 1876, has been amended 507 times, and is the second longest state constitution in the United States.
