Sunset Advisory Commission conducting stakeholder survey on TRS; please participate

The Teacher Retirement System of Texas (TRS) is undergoing Sunset review as directed by the Legislature in the Texas Sunset Act. The Sunset Advisory Commission is evaluating TRS’ operations and will make recommendations to the Legislature on how to improve the agency’s effectiveness, efficiency, fairness and accountability.

The Sunset Commission’s staff would like to hear from you and other stakeholders because it relies on stakeholders’ input to identify problems and propose workable solutions for agencies under Sunset review. Please take a few minutes to complete the Sunset survey linked here by Friday, Nov. 22. Completing the survey should take about seven minutes.

Your survey responses will be confidential and will not be shared with TRS. Any other comments you may wish to provide before the Sunset staff report is published next March also will be confidential and will not be shared with the agency.

Join the Sunset commission’s email list for updates on the Sunset staff report and public hearings on TRS. If you have specific questions about the Sunset review of TRS, please contact Tamara Aronstein at 512-463-1300 or
