Texas State Representative Dwayne Bohac

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

As a lifelong resident of House District 138, born and raised in Northwest Houston, improving our local quality of life has always been my top priority. That’s why I have fought for lower taxes and job creation, worked to improve local flood control efforts, cracked down on nuisance apartments, helped pass stronger border security measures, and worked with parents, teachers and local school board members to improve education.

With your support, I will continue to work hard and deliver results for our local community. Please take a minute to explore my website and don’t hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or need assistance.

Sincerely,

Dwayne Bohac’s signature

Rep. Dwayne Bohac Reminds Families to Take Advantage of Texas’ Sales Tax Holiday This Weekend

With the start of the new school year once again around the corner, State Representative Dwayne Bohac (R-Houston) reminds families and shoppers to take advantage of our state's annual sales tax holiday this weekend, August 11-13. The three day sales tax holiday exempts Texas shoppers from paying sales and use taxes on most clothing, footwear, school supplies and backpacks priced under $100. This will save shoppers roughly $8 on every $100 they spend. Since the annual sales tax holiday was enacted in 1999, it has saved Texans over $1.04 billion. This year, shoppers will save an estimated $87 million alone.

Happy Independence Day!

"Let the Fourth of July always be a reminder that here in this land, for the first time, it was decided that man is born with certain God-given rights; that government is only a convenience created and managed by the people, with no powers of its own except those voluntarily granted to it by the people. We sometimes forget that great truth, and we never should." - President Ronald Reagan

We Cannot Let Them Turn District 138 Blue!

While states like Illinois and California border on financial ruin, Texas is once again leading the way by adhering to our Constitution and conservative principles. From day one I have pledged to be a strong conservative voice, and I am proud of what we accomplished during the 85th Legislative Session. My fight for conservative principles and limited government has made me a target for liberal democrats in 2018. We cannot let them turn District 138 blue! That's why I'm asking for your help.

Less Than 30 Days Until the Special Session

We are now less than 30 days away from a legislative special session called by Governor Greg Abbott that will begin on July 18th, 2017. The regular legislative session adjourned on May 29th.  In his initial announcement, Governor Abbott identified 20 items that will be included on the special session call. View the list...

The Texas Legislature Stands Adjourned

The 85th Session of the Texas Legislature has adjourned. Out of approximately 6,600 bills that were filed, over 1,200 ultimately passed both the Texas House and Texas Senate and await the Governor’s signature to become law. Most notably, the Texas House worked collaboratively with the Senate to meet our single constitutional requirement of passing a balanced state budget for the 2018-2019 period. In addition to passing a balanced and fiscally conservative state budget, the Legislature addressed Governor Abbott’s top emergency items, including CPS and Foster Care Reform, Sanctuary Cities, Ethics Reform, Convention of States and Voter ID. Further, we passed monumental pro-life reforms and worked to ensure a strong and prosperous business climate. Here are just a few highlights of this session’s accomplishments...
