The Missouri House Transportation Committee Chairman believes a gas tax and a diesel tax increase must be part of the answer to funding the state Department of Transportation (MoDOT). State Rep. Bill Reiboldt, R-Neosho, serves on the transportation task force holding hearings across Missouri. “That’s what we’re going to determine here, whether we take six, seven cents (a gallon increase) with gas and diesel,” Reiboldt says.
CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo.- A Missouri lawmaker who represents the Bootheel says plant closings across the United States have been devastating. State Sen. Doug Libla, R-Poplar Bluff, represents eight counties in southeast Missouri, including New Madrid County. He says American manufacturing has been “under attack” for a long time. “Competition is good but there needs to be fair competition, and it’s been unfair for many years,” Libla says.
PORTAGEVILLE, Mo.- A key state lawmaker says a steel mill owner from India has visited southeast Missouri’s New Madrid County multiple times. State Rep. Don Rone, R-Portageville, says New Madrid County remains in the running for a steel mill, which he says would provide about 165 initial jobs. The Portageville Republican is expecting a decision by the end of December. “He (the steel mill owner) has been here three times,” Rone says.
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".
