During the regular session, the House pushed for the use of the Rainy Day Fund to resolve TRS-Care problems but the Senate balkedOne group of people nowhere on Gov. Greg Abbott’s call clearly have reaped the benefits of a three-week gap between the regular and special sessions: retired teachers. The efforts range from nominal to astronomical: Reps. Drew Darby, R-San Angelo, and Ryan Guillen, D-Rio Grande City, put aside $100 million in House Bill 76.
After years of pursuing voter ID, which does nothing to crack down on mail voting fraud, Republican leaders turn to emphasize thisGov. Greg Abbott brought what seemed like genuine passion to the issue of mail-in ballot fraud at the TPPF Policy Orientation yesterday, suggesting additional reprisals and even felonies for those who cheat the election system. Mail-in ballot fraud is one of Abbott’s 20 for 20 reforms in the special session.
“I’m going to be establishing a list. You all or other organizations may be establishing a list. We all need to establish lists that we publish on a daily basis, where we call people out”Gov. Greg Abbott left no doubt he was no fan of the current “Sunset and Sine Die” movement at this morning’s TPPF Policy Orientation and instead favors publishing a daily list of which lawmakers are with him and which are against him during the special.
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".
