HBA-TBM H.B. 927 77(R)BILL ANALYSIS Office of House Bill AnalysisH.B. 927 By: Hill Pensions & Investment 6/7/7/3/2001 Enrolled BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Prior to the 77th Legislature, state law provided that permanently disabled retirees who were incapable of ever working again must submit an annual earnings report (report) to the Teacher Retirement System of Texas (TRS) to inform the agency that they were still unemployable. The report had to be notarized and mailed to TRS every year even when a retiree's disability was immutable, which may have caused an excess burden for the retiree and the retiree's care giver. House Bill 927 repeals the annual earnings report requirement for all disability retirees of TRS who are less than 60 years old. 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 927 amends the Government Code to repeal the provision requiring a disability retiree who is less than 60 years old to annually submit a report of earnings to the Teacher Retirement System of Texas. EFFECTIVE DATE September 1, 2001.
