The federal government is hours away from running out of money and only the U.S. Senate can stop it. So now is probably a good time to start asking what a partial government shutdown would mean for Delawareans. For most state residents, the answer is not much – at least not immediately. Some of the nearly 3,000 civilian federal workers based in Delaware deemed "non-essential" would be furloughed on Monday. But Medicaid and Medicare health benefits would continue.
Delaware's longshot pitch to land Amazon's second U.S. headquarters came up short. The online retail giant on Thursday unveiled 20 locations across the country that have advanced in its unprecedented sweepstakes a project that promises $5 billion worth of real estate investment and up to 50,000 jobs. Newark, New Jersey and Montgomery County, Maryland, also are still in the running. But the First State is among 218 sites whose proposals did not make the first cut.
A last-ditch effort to pass a right-to-work law for Sussex County stalled in the General Assembly on Wednesday. Following an hour-long hearing, Rep. Ronald Gray, R-Selbyville, could not get the six votes he needed to move the measure out of committee. Opponents, meanwhile, were unable to muster the same number of votes to table the legislation. Gray said he has no plans to amend the bill in the hopes of breaking the deadlock, a decision that essentially killed the legislation.
Calling out the people @JohnCarneyDE has met, he makes his final point to legislators: "They make hard decisions every day in order to make life easier for somebody else. They expect us to do the same. They’ve put their trust in us, and we cannot let them down." #netDE#DESOTS
"Based on the Independent Review Team’s recommendations, we reached an agreement to increase salaries for Delaware’s correctional officers."

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".
