    Provide For

    Some confusion about "provide" and "provide for":

    ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guam#Post-war )
    "After the war, the Guam Organic Act of 1950, established Guam as an unincorporated organized territory of the United States, provided for the structure of the island's civilian government, and granted the people U.S. citizenship."

    Do any native speakers think that "provide" would be more appropriate than "provide for"?
