What is the function of the South Australian Parliament?


The South Australian Parliament makes laws that govern South Australia. While some exclusive powers are held by the federal government (or the Commonwealth as it is also called), powers over some areas of law are shared by the states and the Commonwealth. Laws governing law and order, commerce and industry, primary production, education, housing, health, transport and development are the domain of the states.
