SANTA FE — New Mexico lawmakers will embark on a 30-day legislative session today with a new anti-harassment policy in place that will — for the first time — require an outside expert to be involved in reviewing complaints against sitting legislators. After more than two hours of debate, top-ranking lawmakers voted 15-0 today in favor of adopting the new policy, which took effect immediately.
SANTA FE – The New Mexico Roundhouse has been a grim citadel for much of the past two years, as lawmakers have grappled with persistent revenue shortfalls and dug battle lines over hot-button issues. But with a 30-day session set to begin Tuesday, the state’s 112 legislators can put away the budget scalpels as an improving fiscal situation has brightened spirits and led to renewed talk of bipartisan collaboration.
SANTA FE — A bipartisan group of New Mexico lawmakers has unveiled a proposed rewrite of the Legislature’s harassment policy that would require an outside expert to be involved in reviewing complaints against sitting legislators. The policy, which will be voted on Monday by legislative leaders, would mark a stark departure from the Legislature’s current policy. Under that policy, sexual harassment claims are investigated in-house under a largely secretive process.

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".
