Call to Action: Establish TRS Reserve Fund
June 8, 2017
Legislation that would authorize school districts and BOCES to create and fund a Teachers Retirement System reserve fund moved through the Assembly Education Committee this week. This bill is on the Senate Calendar but has not been scheduled for a vote.
As contribution rates decline, the savings generated could help districts and BOCES prepare for inevitable future rate increases. Please use the link above to ask your legislators to enact S.4563, Golden/A.7353-A, Buchwald before the end of the legislative session.
