Bill Helping TRS and Retirees Delayed Again, Discussions Ongoing
TRTA Members Described as Powerful and Influential Advocates!
Thank you TRTA members! Your advocacy over the last two days has been second to none. While we did not see action on SB 1458 again today, your voice has been heard. I have received numerous calls from Senate members asking questions about this bill and wanting more information. I have been told on SEVERAL occasions that TRTA members are knowledgeable, pleasant, passionate and very effective.
I do not have the words to express our sincere appreciation to you for all of your hard work. You are making a big difference!
The Senate will not be back in session until Monday. TRTA is recommending that everyone send emails over the weekend (click here). Many Senate offices will be closed until then, so feel free to maintain email communications and resume calls next week (let’s all get some rest and be READY FOR NEXT WEEK!!). TRTA will provide an update about advocacy efforts after the weekend with phone numbers and a new email campaign.
As always, TRTA appreciates your ongoing support. We are working to pass legislation that will keep your TRS fund sound and provide retirees with a benefit increase! Thank you for all that you do.
