Tex. Gov't Code Section 802.301
Actuarial Impact Statements


Except as provided by Subsection (g), a bill or resolution that proposes to change the amount or number of benefits or participation in benefits of a public retirement system or that proposes to change a fund liability of a public retirement system is required to have attached to it an actuarial impact statement as provided by this section.


An actuarial impact statement required by this section must:


summarize the actuarial analysis prepared under Section 802.302 (Preparation of Actuarial Analysis) for the bill or resolution accompanying the actuarial impact statement;


identify and comment on the reasonableness of each actuarial assumption used in the actuarial analysis under Subdivision (1); and


include other information determined necessary by board rule.


The board is primarily responsible for preparing a required actuarial impact statement under this section.


A required actuarial impact statement must be attached to the bill or resolution:


before a committee hearing on the bill or resolution is held; and


at the time it is reported from a legislative committee of either house for consideration by the full membership of a house of the legislature.


An actuarial impact statement must remain with the bill or resolution to which it is attached throughout the legislative process, including the process of submission to the governor.


A bill or resolution for which an actuarial impact statement is required is exempt from the requirement of a fiscal note as provided by Chapter 314 (Fiscal Notes and Cost Projections).


An actuarial impact statement is not required for a bill or resolution that proposes to have an economic effect on a public retirement system only by providing new or increased administrative duties.


The board shall provide to the Legislative Budget Board a copy of any actuarial impact statement required under this section.
