The 2009-2010 Tennessee Blue Book, the definitive source for information about state government and history, is now available online.
The Blue Book can be accessed by visiting http://state.tn.us/sos/bluebook/index.htm
"I am pleased the Tennessee Blue Book is now available online for all Tennesseans," Secretary of State Tre Hargett said. "Many schools use the Tennessee Blue Book in history and civics lessons - and this online feature will increase students' access to this valuable resource."
The Blue Book is produced every two years by the Secretary of State’s office. It contains valuable information about the legislative, executive and judicial branches of state government – including biographical information about top elected and appointed officials.
The Blue Book also includes biographical information about the state’s representatives in Congress, the full texts of the state and U.S. constitutions, a detailed history of the state, information about historical sites around Tennessee, statistics about cities and counties, election results, state symbols and more.
Teachers, students, archivists, journalists, government officials and other citizens regularly use the Blue Book as a resource.
The current edition of the Blue Book is dedicated to the state’s military veterans who have been killed in the line of duty during the War on Terror.
