by TPEA | August 13, 2021
Austin, Texas (July 19, 2021) — The Texas Public Employees Association (TPEA), the largest nonunion, nonpartisan association for active and retired Texas state employees, recently honored Texas Senator Jane Nelson with an award for providing valuable support in restoring the Employees Retirement System (ERS) pension fund.
“Senator Nelson’s support and leadership were vital in tackling the pension fund debt,” said Executive Director Ann Bishop. “We are happy to recognize Senator Nelson for providing valuable support in bringing pension funds for hundreds of thousands of essential Texas employees and retirees on a path to solvency.”
TPEA was instrumental in the creation of the ERS pension fund and health insurance for state employees and retirees. Most recently, the association lobbied for the additional monies necessary to both address an almost $15B debt and move the ERS pension fund toward actuarial soundness.
