Defined Benefits and Fund Stability in Texas

A number of proposals affecting pension systems for public employees were brought forward in the most recent Texas legislative session. Many proposals could touch the lives of workers such as firefighters, police officers, educators, and city employees. The bills are often complicated, but when legislators take the time to understand them, they can make decisions that positively help pension systems. This booklet explains why defined benefits for public employees are important to Texas.
