Action Alert: Ask the Senate Retirement Committee to SUPPORT SB 6

We are at the first stop on our Road to a COLA! We have received word that the Senate Retirement Committee will meet as early as Monday, March 28, and Senate Bill 6 by Senator Ed Price will be on the agenda. SB 6 will provide for a two percent cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) to eligible TRSL retirees. Retirees must be retired at least one year and age 60.

Because of the quick turnaround, we recommended calling or emailing members of the Senate Retirement Committee to ask for their SUPPORT of SB 6.

If you have your Golden Letters ready, make sure to mail them TODAY!

Please email or call the Senate Retirement Committee to ask them to SUPPORT SB 6. Here is a link to download a Word Document sample letter, or click here for a PDF sample letter to use as a guide. The contact information for the Senate Retirement Committee is listed below.

All messages sent thereafter will be based on constituency and may not work for some members. In that instance, we recommend emailing committee members individually)
