Wisconsin Legislative Council Redesigns Website, Removes Older Documents

The library recently received a letter from the Wisconsin Legislative Council regarding their newly redesigned web site. It states:

Due to fiscal and resource constraints, it is not feasible for this office to keep more than five years of publications on the site. All publications are kept permanently at the Wisconsin Legislative Council offices and are available upon request at any time.
As you are probably aware, because of the redesign, current links and bookmarks to our publications will no longer function.

This is quite troubling. The removal of online government documents always is. As a potential work around, my colleague, Cindy May, suggests trying the WayBack Machine to retrieve documents.
