The onslaught on our Retirement / Pension plan has begun. House Rep Rob Orr (District 58, Bosque and Johnson County) has filed a bill that if passed, will reduce the interest paid on our retirement account from 7% to 5%. Over the years, this could cost you thousands of dollars and prolong your years of service. This is undoubtly the first of many bills that we (TCSOA and CLEAT) will be fighting this year.
This does not come as a surprise as we have been bracing for this session. If you have not done so already, refer to the articles posted in the "What's New" and "Headline" section on the home page. We are going to need your support to fight these bills. Please go the "Contact Congress" box on the home page to contact your State Reps and voice your disapproval of this bill. The folks at CLEAT will continue to lobby for us. Do not take this lightly, get involved. We will provide updates on this page as they become available.
