Members of the Texas Retired Teachers Association (TRTA) have started receiving their copies of TRTA’s quarterly news bulletin, The VOICE, with information about what transpired during the 88th Legislative Session that adjourned on Memorial Day.
We have received many calls and emails asking about the next steps in the process for supporting the constitutional amendment that must pass during the November 2023 election to ensure the Legislature provides funding for cost-of-living adjustments (COLAs) for hundreds of thousands of Texas public education retirees. You can read more about the COLA at this link.
TRTA officially is kicking off a series of Facebook and YouTube live events with Executive Director Tim Lee that will provide more information for our members about how TRTA plans to support the amendment and how members can participate in the process.
The first live event will be held on Tuesday, July 11 at 4:00 p.m.
Tim Lee will continue these live events the second Tuesday of every month, through Election Day on November 7, 2023.
Members, please mark your calendars for this live event on July 11 and let your fellow retirees know about it!
