BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.
To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.
To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

The NFL is not making the letter available to the public at this time, an NFL spokesman said Tuesday in an emailed statement.
The union could not immediately be reached for comment.
