Most online brokers will have a way to search for muni's. There isn't a way to really search for new issues unless they have just been announced. You just have to keep checking. When a new issue is announced there is an advertisement and an indication of interest period that goes on before they set the yield for each time period being offered based on how many people buy the bonds.
If you are looking to buy in the secondary market that is not the case, but I would be very careful and probably use a broker that you trust. Fixed income trading is probably the top way that normal investors get screwed.
