Gov. Scott Walker is signing the two-year, $76 billion budget in Neenah Thursday, providing more than $600 million more for K-12 schools, cutting property taxes on businesses and raising fees on hybrid drivers. “This budget maintains the highest appropriated levels of K-12 school aid in state history, eliminates the state-levied property tax, and keeps property taxes for the typical homeowner lower than 2010 levels,” Walker said in a statement.
MADISON - Wisconsin lawmakers announced Wednesday they were forming a bipartisan millennial caucus in hopes of finding common ground on technology, entrepreneurship and other issues. The Wisconsin Future Caucus is being chaired by Rep. Amanda Stuck (D-Appleton) and Rep. Adam Neylon (R-Pewaukee). It includes about 20 members, with slightly more Democrats than Republicans, Neylon said. The group is an outgrowth of the Millenial Action Project, a national organization with caucuses in 18 other states.
MADISON - Gov. Scott Walker could release as soon as Wednesday the partial vetoes he’ll make to the state budget, revealing how much he'll accept — or reject — of the changes made to the bill by his fellow Republicans in the Legislature. The two-year, $76 billion state budget bill passed the Legislature last week and made it to Walker's desk Wednesday after receiving the needed signoff from Assembly Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester).
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".
