To Those Interested in the Wisconsin Blue Book:
The 2003-2004 Wisconsin Blue Book, the 86th edition in a series that began in 1853, is now available. The feature article in this edition is "Wisconsin's People: A Portrait of Wisconsin's Population on the Threshold of the 21st Century". As usual, the Blue Book contains the biographies and photos of Wisconsin's elected public officials, the text of the Wisconsin Constitution, and a detailed description of the organization and functions of state government. There is also a statistical section providing diverse information on the state.
By law, the price of the Blue Book is based on the actual cost of printing and distribution. Members of the Wisconsin Legislature are provided with a limited number of Blue Books for distribution to constituents. If you are a Wisconsin resident, you may wish to check with your legislator regarding the availability of a complimentary copy. Copies are also provided to libraries, schools, and certain public officials specified by statute.
