State Teacher's Retiree Health Care - In Danger!
Post date: Apr 15, 2013 12:22:15 PM
URGENT MESSAGE FROM CEA: COMMITTEE VOTE EXPECTED NEXT WEEK – ACT NOW!
The current budget proposal has NO funding for the Retiree Health Care Fund! This is terrible fiscal policy!
The Appropriations Committee is working on a new proposal, the vote will likely be next week.
Call the Appropriations Committee chairs TODAY and ask them to protect current and future retirees by fully funding this obligation!
Teachers have always paid their share – the State has a responsibility to pay theirs!
The CT Mirror explains how if the TRB does not receive any state funding that it is possible for the fund to be almost depleted in 2 years.
Call the chairs now at the number below:
Representative Toni Walker (D)
Senator Toni Harp (D)
