Board adopts rules for advisory committee

March 7, 2018


At its December 2017 meeting, the ERS Board of Trustees adopted an amendment to administrative rule 63.17. This amendment supports the Group Benefits Advisory Committee (GBAC) which will provide input to the Board on the development and administration of the Texas Employees Group Benefits Program (GBP).


The GBP provides health coverage and other insurance plans to state employees, retirees and their families. ERS created the GBAC in response to a recommendation from the Sunset Advisory Commission during the
2017 Texas legislative session. The GBAC will have its first meeting in March 2018. More information about the adopted rule can be found in the December 29 Texas Register.
