PART 5. TEXAS COUNTY AND DISTRICT RETIREMENT SYSTEM

CHAPTER 105. CREDITABLE SERVICE

34 TAC §105.9

The Board of Trustees for the Texas County and District Retirement System ("TCDRS") adopts new rule, §105.9, concerning notice by a participating subdivision of certain felony convictions of elected or appointed officers. The new rule is adopted without changes to the proposed text as published in the October 20, 2017, issue of the Texas Register (42 TexReg 5838). The text of the new rule will not be republished.

The new rule implements Senate Bill 500, 85th Legislature, 2017. The new rule prescribes the content of the written notice, which is required to be filed by the participating subdivision, concerning certain felony convictions of certain participating members and which will ensure compliance with the pension forfeiture provisions required under Government Code, §810.002 enacted by the 85th Legislature, 2017.

The Board received no comments, written or otherwise, regarding the proposed new rule.

The new rule is adopted under the Government Code, §845.102, which authorizes the TCDRS Board of Trustees to adopt rules for the efficient administration of the system and under Government Code, §810.002(j), which requires a public retirement system to adopt rules to implement §810.002.

No other statutes, articles, or codes are affected by the adopted new rule.

The agency certifies that legal counsel has reviewed the adoption and found it to be a valid exercise of the agency's legal authority.

Filed with the Office of the Secretary of State on December 21, 2017.
