Dear MRTA Members:
HOUSE OMNIBUS EDUCATION BILL HCS/HB 1740
IF you have not done so yet, there is still time to put the brakes on this legislation. Please e-mail or call your State Representative and ask them to oppose HCS/HB 1740. THANK YOU to those who have done so as requested by February 28th. IT IS NOT TOO LATE!
It is our hope the legislation will not come out of the Rules Committee because of intense opposition from educators including MRTA retirees.
Still do not know who your State Representative is? Go to WWW.MRTA.ORG and type your zip code in the blue box that says "WRITE YOUR LEGISLATORS" button, then it will ask for your home address.
Please stay tuned as another very bad piece of legislation was filed yesterday affecting your COLA at PSRS/PEERS. More to come.
THANK YOU for being counted as a member of MRTA.
MRTA works to protect your retirement benefits and to enhance the quality of life for ALL Missouri education retirees - present and future.
