Watch video of the U.S. Senate subcommittee hearing testimony on the West Virginia chemical spill held February 4. The Committee on Environment and Public Works' water and wildlife subcommittee convened Tuesday on the spill that left 300,000 people without clean water for days. “Industry will resist any new regulations or stronger enforcement measures.

Nearly an hour after midnight on Sunday morning, the West Virginia Legislature completed action on a budget bill for the 2018 fiscal year. The budget bill was passed, as amended in the Senate just before midnight, on a 22 to 12 party line vote. The House of Delegates concurred with those amendments on a 63-37 around 1:00 a.m. The bill now heads to Gov. Jim Justice. The approved budget bill is not the negotiated plan the Governor presented during a 10 p.m. press conference.
Just two hours before the end of the 60th and final day of the West Virginia, Governor Jim Justice said he and Senate President Mitch Carmichael have struck a deal to run a wide-ranging revenue bill that would help push through a budget before midnight. “To just tell it like it is, I’ve been really pessimistic for the last 36 hours. Until about 2 o’clock today.
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".
