by TPEA | November 17, 2021

Austin, Texas (November 9, 2021) — The Texas Public Employees Association (TPEA), the largest nonunion, nonpartisan association for active and retired Texas state employees, recently honored Texas Senator Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa in Corpus Christi with an award for his strength in advocating for the Texas state workforce.

 

“Senator Hinojosa worked hard to ensure that the ERS pension fund was put on a path to solvency,” said Executive Director Ann Bishop. “We are happy to recognize Senator Hinojosa for his dedication to protecting quality benefits for hundreds of thousands of essential Texas employees and retirees.”

 

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.
