The Texas Constitution and the United States Constitution have a lot in common. The current constitution of Texas took effect on February 15, 1876. The US Constitution has influenced the Texas Constitution in many ways. Like the US Constitution, the Texas Constitution has articles defining Powers of th Government, the Legislative Department, and the Executive Department. These definitions largely mirror those of the US Constitution. One may recall that Texas was its own state for several years, and aimed to adopt a similar trend as the US Constitution. The Texas Constitution even has a Bill of Rights
. As the US Constitution has been defined and added upon over time, the Texas Constitution has also been influenced by these decisions. For example, court cases that dealt with the US Constitution have influenced the legality of the Texas Constitution as applied in practice.
