TALLAHASSEE â€” Senate Rules Chair Lizbeth Benacquisto asked her chamber to waive the rules and move Democratic State Sen. Lauren Book's sexual harassment bill to the Senate floor for a vote. Senate President Joe Negron (R-Stuart) and his leadership came under fire from House Speaker Richard Corcoran (R-Land O-Lakes) on Thursday for letting the sexual harassment bill die in the Government Oversight and Accountability Committee, which is chaired by state Sen. Dennis Baxley (R-Ocala).
TALLAHASSEE — Gov. Rick Scott's signature plan to spend $54 million to combat the state's opioid epidemic is in danger of not getting funded as legislators race against a midnight deadline to get it done. The current opioid funding has been attached to FL HB 21 (18R), which the House has yet to bring to the floor for a vote as of late Friday afternoon. If the bill dies, then there may be no money in the state's $88 billion budget to battle the state's opioid crisis this legislative session.
TALLAHASSEE — The House on Friday stripped the Senate's sexual harassment bill and replaced it with its own language, leaving the legislation back in the hands of the Senate. The Senate had earlier in the day passed its version of the bill, FL SB1628 (18R), shortly after the Senate rules chair asked to waive the rules and take it up on the floor. It then unanimously passed the measure.
Looking for favorite classical music especially those with piano and violin for my end-of-session-I'm-finally-alive cleaning day. Would also love modern recs in the same vein. @mahoneysthename please chime in
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
