The next Tennessee Blue Book will be named after former Senate Majority Leader Howard Baker, who was known as the "The Great Conciliator" during his high profile Washington career that also included a stint as chief of staff to President Ronald Reagan.

The Blue Book is Tennessee's official manual on state government.
