RULE §610.31Compliance with Progress Updates

(a) A system adhering to a legacy funding soundness restoration plan shall continue providing progress updates every two years rather than submitting progress updates in accordance with this section.

(b) The first draft of a plan submitted as a part of a progress update under Texas Government Code §§802.2015(f) or 802.2016(f) must, at minimum, include a projected timeline for enactment of the plan, and identify the action that various entities must take to approve or enact the plan, such as votes that may be necessary in accordance with the system's governing statute. Each subsequent progress update should include a draft plan that contains updated information and that demonstrates movement toward a complete and finalized plan.

(c) A description of changes submitted as part of a progress update to fulfill the requirements of Texas Government Code §§802.2015(f) or 802.2016(f) must include the projected actuarial impact of each change under consideration on the retirement system's funding period and funded ratio.

(d) A system must submit updates consistent with subsections (b) and (c) of this section to the board starting September 1, 2023, and every six months thereafter until the system submits a funding soundness restoration plan to the board and the board determines it is compliant if the system:

  (1) received an actuarial valuation dated prior to September 1, 2021, that triggered a funding soundness restoration plan requirement; and

  (2) does not have a board-approved legacy funding soundness restoration plan.

(e) A system or associated governmental entity that receives an actuarial valuation dated after September 1, 2021, that triggers a funding soundness restoration plan, including a revised funding soundness restoration plan, must submit updates to the board beginning not later than the first anniversary of the valuation date of the actuarial valuation that required formulation of the plan and every subsequent six-month period until the plan is submitted as described in Texas Government Code §§802.2015(f) or 802.2016(f).

(f) A system or associated governmental entity preparing a voluntary funding soundness restoration plan is not required to submit progress updates to the board.
