LOS ANGELES — California voters could be weighing water bond measures totaling $21 billion in 2018. The California Chamber of Commerce came out in support of two of the measures that have a combined price tag of nearly $14 billion. CalChamber supports a bond proposal from Gerald Meral, a former state water official, that would authorize $8.9 billion.
LOS ANGELES — Municipal bonds — and other fixed-income asset classes, even Treasuries — have traditionally received short shrift in college finance courses. Recognizing that it creates a chasm in the knowledge base of future financial workers, and has the side effect of making students unaware of the world of municipal bond finance as a career path, municipal bond professionals like Marcia Clark are working to change that.
LOS ANGELES — Nossaman LLP lauded an Oregon task force’s efforts to come up with "creative" methods of reducing the state's pension liability. Oregon Gov. Kate Brown charged a task force in May with finding unconventional sources of funding to pay down $5 billion in pension liability in five years.
@PaulBurton_BB and I have the low down on why business schools don't teach bonds -- and particularly muni bonds -- which can be a recruitment issue if students don't consider it as a career path. https://t.co/IA7QNuxTAP

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".
