Tonight, the Texas Legislature’s budget conferees adopted a strategy that will allocate approximately $480 million towards TRS-Care. This budget will still need to be approved in both the House and Senate. CSHB 3976, the bill that would prevent TRS-Care from entering “a death spiral,” is still awaiting a vote in the Texas Senate. TRTA will keep you updated as these stories continue to develop.
