LRTA Legislative Update #5: Senate Passes SB 6 and Other Legislative Updates
April 8, 2022

Action Alert: Ask Your Senator to SUPPORT SB 6

Senate Bill 6 by Senator Ed Price has PASSED the Senate Finance Committee. SB 6, which will provide for a two percent cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) to TRSL retirees age 60 and retired at least one year, is now headed to the Senate Floor. The Senate could vote on SB 6 any day now.

I encourage everyone who has their Golden Letter ready for their senator to go ahead and mail it to them today. Here is a link to download the Golden Letter template if you need. Although hand-written letters are very effective, you may type your letters on a Word Document if you prefer.
Not sure what to say? Here is a link to download a Word Document sample letter, or click here for a PDF sample letter to use as a guide. Please write letters, email or call your senator to ask them to SUPPORT SB 6.
To find your senator’s contact information, go to https://legis.la.gov/legis/FindMyLegislators.aspx. After you input the necessary information, your senator should appear. Click on their name to be redirected to their contact information page.
We are moving along on our “Road to a COLA!”
