Dear Student,
Hi and thank you or using Brainmass. The solution below should get you started. When we say state, it can mean two countries such as China and the US, or in the case of the US, two different states (as each has its own constitution) such as California and Texas. Whichever you choose, either nation comparison or state comparison, both will have their own unique policies that might be similar but not always the same on a particular issue. I suggest the following outline:

1. The policy you chose to look into and the states you will discuss (background) - 100 words.
2. Policy for State 1 - 150 words
3. Policy for State 2 - 150 words
4. Discussion of main similarities and differences - 100 words

I have chosen, as a sample, to focus on the welfare policies of the states of Texas and California. The resources listed here will be useful if you want more information on this.
