NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

The latest version of the state's Blue Book is Tennessee orange.

The Blue Book is the Tennessee's guide to state government. It includes information about state history and government, and contains biographies of all members of the Tennessee General Assembly.

This year's book is dedicated to Pat Summitt, the coach emeritus of the Lady Volunteers basketball team at the University of Tennessee.

The Blue Book is published every two years by the secretary of state's office, and the new edition was delivered to the Capitol on Monday.

Secretary of State Tre Hargett has said that the dedication reflects that Summitt has inspired countless Tennesseans, first as a basketball coach and more recently as an advocate for Alzheimer's research.
