A BILL TO BE ENTITLED
 
AN ACT
  relating to the state salary for retired judges.
         BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF TEXAS:
         SECTION 1.  In the event the 86th Legislature enacts
  legislation increasing the state salary of district or appellate
  judges or justices or authorizes a state salary increase for
  district or appellate judges or justices in the General
  Appropriations Act, on the effective date of the salary increase,
  the Employees Retirement System of Texas shall recompute the
  annuities of persons who retired before the effective date of the
 
  salary increase under Sections 839.102 or 839.103, Government Code,
  as if the retiree's salary on the date of retirement was that of a
  judge or justice who has eight years and 1 day of service and is of
  the same classification as the last court to which the retiree was
  elected or appointed.  On the effective date of a state salary
  increase described by this Act, the retirement system shall also
  recompute the annuities of beneficiaries receiving an annuity that
  became payable before that date under Sections 839.301 or 839.302,
  Government Code, in the same manner.
         SECTION 2.  This Act takes effect September 1, 2019.
