Stable Costs for ERS Health Insurance

 TPEA lobbied for stable ERS health insurance funding for active and retired state employees. ERS has managed costs well for several years, and according to ERS, there will be no increase in premium costs for HealthSelect participants. 

Parental Leave Bill

The Legislature passed the Parental Leave Bill (SB 222) which grants State employees 40 days of paid leave for employees giving birth, and 20 days of paid leave for the employee of a spouse giving birth. 

This significant change will help ease the financial strain that often comes with the lack of paid leave during childbirth or adoption, allowing State employees to cherish valuable bonding time with their child.
