Action Alert: Ask Your Representative to Support Funding For a COLA

The Texas House Appropriations Article III Subcommittee is set to meet on Feb. 27 at 9 a.m. This subcommittee will be working on budget recommendations related to the Teacher Retirement System of Texas (TRS) and will also likely ask questions about a benefit increase for TRS retirees this session.

The Texas Retired Teachers Association (TRTA) is asking its members to use our Action Alert to let House members know that retired educators are in desperate need of a cost-of-living adjustment (COLA)!

The meeting will be available to watch here.

TRTA is supporting a COLA this session for retired educators. Now is a critical time during the legislative session. We need our members to help focus the Legislature on a COLA for TRS retirees.

Texas has a huge budget surplus, and the House Appropriations Article III Subcommittee will play a hand in how this surplus is used. Now is the time to educate and advocate for TRTA’s COLA priority this session.

Use our Action Alert!

TRTA is the voice for all public education retirees, and we need a seat at the table as session progresses.
