The MARSE legislative committee completes the link betwen the state and district legislative committees. All levels take an active part to preserve the Teacher Retirement System of Texas and the TRS-Health Care programs.

The most important work of the local committee is to inform and mobilize MARSE members to contact legislators to voice their opinions for TRTA priorities.

The local committee also personally contacts the district offices of state senators and state representatives. The MARSE legislative committee also relays information regarding federal issues for retirees.
