CALL TO ACTION:
Senator Brady and the Senate Republican Caucus, with the approval of the Governor, has introduced their agreed upon budget, Senate Bill 2214, which will decrease funding to the Teachers Retirement Insurance Program by 1/3 below the certified levels. This is an even greater underfunding level than was originally proposed in SB 42, which the IRTA managed to get defeated in the Senate.
The IRTA is taking this 1/3 reduction to TRIP as an indication that the proposed Republican budget plan would phase out the TRIP program over the next three years, which would be a diminishment to your benefits.
Please reach out yet again to your legislators and tell them to VOTE NO on SB 2214 (the budget) and SB 2217 (the BIMP) and any other measure that would diminish the benefits to retired educators.
