 SD : Institutions: State reforms and the decentralization of the agricultural and rural public sector: Lessons from the ...
The state's capacity to reform was dependent upon the construction of new forms of exercising public authority.
State reforms were a gradual process which started in 1986 with the political election of the mayors.

 National, State, and Provincial Conservation Status Rank Definitions   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Assigning national and subnational conservation status ranks for species and ecological communities follows the same general principles as used in assigning global status ranks.
A subnational rank, however, cannot imply that the species or community is more secure at the state/province level than it is nationally or globally (i.e., a rank of G1S3 cannot occur), and similarly, a national rank cannot exceed the global rank.
Subnational ranks are assigned and maintained by state or provincial natural heritage programs and conservation data centers.

Although the states and municipalities assumed greater responsibilities over an array of social and economic policies, the patrimonial politics of the Brazilian governors and their tendency to reward political supporters through public expenditures threatened to create severe problems for the central state's attempts to rein in public spending and address macroeconomic instability.
In 1990, state governments were prohibited from rolling over their debt to the Banco do Brasil, a restriction that effectively scared away investors from state debt paper and placed tremendous pressures on the governors to either support federal tax reform efforts and state bank restructuring or face bankruptcy (Lagemann 1995, 336).
Subnational efforts during the 1990's to improve public accounts and end the Hobbesian dangers of the fiscal war were critical to the success of federal attempts to reequilibrate intergovernmental authorities and remove the worst problems created by decentralization in the 1980's.
