Support of H.R. 711 -
The Equal Treatment of Public Servants Act
Dear MRTA Members:
Dear Congressman/Congresswoman XXXX
I am a taxpayer, voter, and member of MRTA in your district. I respectfully request your full and active support of H.R. 711 sponsored by Congressman Brady of Texas. H.R. 711 is a compromise bill allowing the WEP offset provision of Social Security to be more fair to retired educators and provide a workable solution to this long-time problem. MRTA and I would like to see a full repeal of WEP but realize a compromise is in order due to financial constraints. I would like to mention that hopefully soon, we can repeal or reform the GPO provisions of Social Security dealing with widow and widower benefits. The GPO is so very unfair and burdensome for retired educators in Missouri.
THANK YOU for your time, support, and attention to this request. Help us put H.R.711 into law. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
