Exciting news for Texas Retired Teachers! This morning as the House Committee on Appropriations was wrapping up, Chairman Otto announced that it was the intent of the Texas House to fully fund TRS Care. This is very exciting news for retired teachers throughout Texas. The discussion now moves to how the solution will be structured. I am grateful to Chairman Otto and my colleagues in the House for their commitment to addressing this crucial issue and look forward to being a part of the ongoing discussion.
