Over 1000 retired teachers met at the Texas Capitol on Wednesday, April 8 to rally for improved benefits! Local Austin station KVUE captured several interviews and exciting moments in their video feature.
In yesterday’s Inside Line, members of the Texas Retired Teachers Association (TRTA) were grateful to hear about the passage of House Bill 2 in the Senate, as well as the passage of House Bill 2168. As you know, House Bill 2 includes funding to shore up the TRS-Care retiree health insurance program. We appreciate the positive vote from the Senate for the $768 million to keep TRS-Care afloat and protect retiree premiums for the coming biennium.
