House Pensions Committee to Meet in Dallas May 10
The Texas House Pensions Committee is scheduled to meet in Dallas on Thursday, May 10 and will discuss a variety of issues pertinent to Texas public education retirees.
The Texas Retired Teachers Association (TRTA) encourages any and all members living in the Dallas area to attend the meeting if possible. Issues being discussed on this day include the immediate and long-term solvency and plan design of TRS-Care and TRS Active-Care health insurance plans, as well as ways to improve defined benefit pension plans.

The meeting will be held at Dallas City Hall in Council Chambers, located at 1500 Marilla Street, Dallas, Texas 75201. The meeting will begin at 10:00 a.m. and is projected to last at least until 3:00 p.m.
While we understand many retirees may not be able to attend the meeting for the entire day, your presence at the meeting is very valuable and any time you could dedicate to this event is appreciated and makes a difference. It is vital that legislators hear from retirees impacted by recent health care changes and potential changes to the Teacher Retirement System of Texas (TRS) pension trust fund.
TRTA also understands that not all attendees will want to provide public testimony but wants you to know that your presence is just as valuable. Putting a face to very real issues facing retirees today helps legislators as they make the decisions that impact your future.
Thank for all you do as a member of TRTA to protect retirement security for all public education retirees in Texas!
