The Mission Statement of the Wisconsin Legislative Reference Bureau is to serve the Wisconsin Legislature and public by providing non-partisan legal, research, and library services. The LRB's three main commitments are:
- Delivering to the Wisconsin Legislature and people related to it, high-quality advice and legislative drafting services in a timely manner.
- Offering the Wisconsin Legislature and the Public, accurate, timely, and useful information on state government and issues before the legislature.
- Maintaining for the Wisconsin Legislature and the Public a comprehensive and well-organized collection of library materials and state government documents.
The four core values of the Legislative Reference Bureau are non-partisanship, confidentiality, expertise, and pride in the institution of the Wisconsin Legislature.
The Legislative Reference Bureau was created in 1901 as its first mission was to help the legislature move more efficiently on matters of bill drafting and research.
