From Larry Yawn (September 2, 2021):
HB5, funding for the supplemental check, passed both the House and Senate Thursday. The bill is now headed for Governor Abbott's desk for his signature.
Legislation authorizing the supplemental payment (SB7) was passed earlier during the Second Special Session.
Following passage of HB5, both the House and Senate adjourned sine die ending the session.
Governor Abbott has indicated that he will call a Third Special Session to address the issue of redistricting. It is anticipated to begin late in September.
WCRTA Members, THANK YOU for your steady support and for and strong belief in the need for benefit improvements for retirees. Your constant work on behalf of this issue has helped to make this moment possible!
Why should Williamson County's State Senator and Representatives be concerned with TRS retirees and their retirement benefits? Because it's big money! Williamson County has more than 5,000 TRS annuitants receiving checks totaling between 100 - 250 MILLION DOLLARS per year.
