MAYOR TURNER COMMENTS ON HARRIS COUNTY DISTRICT COURT DISMISSAL
OF FIRE PENSION LAWSUIT

HOUSTON - Today, a Harris County District Court judge rejected the Firefighters pension fund’s challenge to Senate Bill 2190, which amends the pension statutes for all City employees, police officers and firefighters. This ruling defeats the Fund’s efforts to stop the bill from going into effect July 1, 2017. 

The trial judge dismissed the case in its entirety. In a separate order, the court also denied injunctive relief requested by the Fund.

“’I am pleased with the Court’s ruling," said Mayor Sylvester Turner. "The City will move forward with sustainable pensions for our first responders and city employees."
