House Declares Support for Retired Teacher's Health Plan

Austin, TX -- Today The Texas House of Representatives announced their intention to fund the critical health care plan for retired teachers. Without this action from the House Appropriations Committee, TRS-Care would become insolvent next fiscal year. Funding TRS-Care is crucial because it covers more than 230,000 retired Texas teachers and their dependents. Representative Poncho Nevárez is encouraged by the work of his colleagues in the Appropriations Committee.

"This is a great start in the right direction of finding a long-term solution for retired teachers and their families," Nevárez stated.
