The Wisconsin Blue Book, published biennially, is a terrific source for information about the State of Wisconsin.  According to the Legislative Reference Bureau, the Blue Book's mission is "to furnish the legislature and the public with information about state officers and governmental organization, along with statistical information and articles of general interest."  We are happy to provide you with a FREE copy upon request by clicking here or on the blue book image above.
