Mo. Blue Book available online-only for first time
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The latest edition of Missouri's Official State Manual is now available to the public, but for the first time it's been published only online.
Missouri lawmakers voted in 2010 to stop printing the manual, better known as the Blue Book. The manual is produced by the secretary of state's office and contains information about local, state and federal governments, election records and contact information for government officials and departments.
Secretary of State Robin Carnahan, whose website now carries the manual, says the Blue Book helps make government more open and accessible to voters. Carnahan has also released an online video showing how to use the new digital edition.
