February 01, 2023 - 00:00
After providing an overview of the opening days of the 88th Texas Legislative Session which began Jan. 10 and runs through May 29, Kacal listened to members’ concerns about the State of Texas’ seemingly unwillingness to provide a COLA (cost-of-living-adjustment) to the 190,000-plus retired school personnel in the Teachers Retirement System.
Citing COLA support from House Speaker Dade Phelan and the $44 billion surplus, Kacal said, “Our Public Education committee will be focused on it.”
