You’re welcome to republish our articles and graphics for free using the
following ground rules. Let
us know if you republish our stories; it makes us happy!
Here’s what you need to know:
You can’t change the story in any way except with two exceptions:
Changing references to timing (say, “today” to “yesterday”) or to suit
your in-house style rules (“Beaumont” to “Beaumont, Tex.”).
Shortening a story for length. Just include “This story has been edited for length.”
You can republish our photos and graphics as long as you’re running them on the stories with
which they originally appeared. If you want to run a photo or graphic apart from that story, you must
seek permission. (We don’t always have the copyrights to pass along!). Email our art department or our managing editor, Ayan Mittra, for help.
Give us credit. Please publish the author’s name using the following format:

If we send you a request to remove the content from your site, you must agree to do so immediately.
Because The Texas Tribune syndicates our work for free, we often have trouble
tracking down how many people read Tribune stories on our partners’ sites. We’ve created a tracker to
help measure this audience. If your CMS allows, please assist us in this effort by
including the code snippet below anywhere in the story's HTML. The tracker captures views only; no other
information will be gathered.
