Will 2013 Bring a New State Symbol?

Image of Lester soil

This summer, in conjunction with the Legislative Web Site redesign, the librarians have been reviewing and revising many of our Web pages. Our state symbols page, originally intended for children, looked woefully outdated. We considered dropping it, since the symbols pages on the Secretary of State's Web site are nicely done. However, an analysis of our Web site showed that our symbols pages - both the official symbols and the unofficial symbols pages - received much more traffic than we expected. So instead we edited and improved our lists. We added information on why various symbols were proposed and who sponsored the bills. For example, rather than describing the state soil, we wrote about who was behind the effort to make it official. (That's Lester soil, pictured to the left.)

It seems that each new session brings a new state symbol idea. Odds are that even if there are no changes to the official state symbol page in 2013, there may be updates to the unofficial or proposed state symbol page.
