WASHINGTON — Mayors and county officials are among those preparing to defend a longstanding federal tax deduction for money people pay in state and local taxes. They anticipate the deduction will be on the chopping block as the Trump administration and GOP members of Congress forge ahead with plans to revamp the U.S. tax code. More details are expected about the pending Republican tax plan in the days ahead. It’s tentatively slated to involve up to $1.5 trillion in tax cuts over 10 years.
WASHINGTON — Some city government officials and advocacy groups say they are uneasy about certain aspects of self-driving vehicle legislation that is taking shape in Congress. They’re worried the legislation could undercut the ability of cities to enforce local traffic laws. They also want to ensure that states and localities have ample access to self-driving vehicle data, which might be used to identify safety risks and to manage roadways. There are other questions as well.
WASHINGTON — The Trump administration has been actively engaging with state and local governments, but a slew of tough policy issues remain unresolved at the federal level. Leaders of groups representing governors, counties and cities reflected on this dynamic during a Route Fifty panel discussion here on Tuesday. “This White House has opened its doors to our members," said Matt Chase, executive director of the National Association of Counties. "Especially on project specific actions,” he added.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
