HBA-TBM H.B. 1533 77(R) BILL ANALYSIS Office of House Bill AnalysisH.B. 1533 By: McReynolds Pensions & Investments 2/28/2001 Introduced BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE An educator who works at least 90 days during a regular school year receives the same amount of retirement service credit with the Teacher Retirement System of Texas as an educator who works the entire school year. An educator who teaches summer school receives no service credit. Entitling educators to receive service credit for teaching summer school provides an incentive for teachers to use their vacation time to teach summer school. House Bill 1533 grants one year of retirement credit to educators for every 90 days of instructional service performed during summers between regular school years. RULEMAKING AUTHORITY It is the opinion of the Office of House Bill Analysis that this bill does not expressly delegate any additional rulemaking authority to a state officer, department, agency, or institution. ANALYSIS House Bill 1533 amends the Government Code to provide that instructional service performed by a person during the summers between regular school years is creditable as one year of service for every 90 days of instructional service in the Teacher Retirement System of Texas. EFFECTIVE DATE September 1, 2001.
