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

Representative Bohac Reminds Families to Take Advantage of Texas’ Sales Tax Holiday this Weekend, August 7-9

HOUSTON, TX -- With the start of the new school year 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 7-9. 

"Over the years, the back-to-school tax-free weekend has offered consumers important savings, and that is why I am encouraging all families and shoppers to take advantage of it," Rep. Bohac said.  "As a father with school aged children, I truly understand how costly clothing, shoes and school supplies can be, and every bit of savings helps.  The sales tax holiday will help families save almost 10 percent while getting the essentials to outfit their children and equip them to learn during the upcoming school year." 

Rep. Dwayne Bohac Outlines Accomplishments of the 84th Legislative Session

Houston, TX -- With the 84th Legislative Session recently adjourning Sine Die, State Representative Dwayne Bohac (R-Houston) is pleased to announce some of the highlights that will benefit all Texas taxpayers and families. e

Bohac: Tax-credit proposal is a boost for education marketplace

{via The Houston Chronicle}

We get to choose what kind of cellphone we have; we get to choose where we shop for groceries; and we get to choose our dry cleaner. Choosing a child's education is even more important. To that end, the Educational Tax Credit Scholarship bill (HB 1043/SB 4) would help bring meaningful choice and increase equity in the education marketplace for working-class families.

The Educational Tax Credit Scholarship is simple: It allows Texas businesses to invest in their future workforce by receiving a tax credit from the franchise or insurance premium tax when they contribute to nonprofit organizations that award K-12 scholarships to both public school and private school students. In fact, 40,000 public school students could use this stipend for after-school tutoring or transportation costs associated with public-to-public school transfers. Because the cost of the program is capped, and the scholarship amounts limited, roughly 10,000 students would participate in the private school tax credit component. Most of the benefit would go to public school students through scholarships for educational resources.

Texas lawmakers call for Sales Tax Holiday for small businesses

Texas’ top accountant and several state lawmakers announced their support today for “Small Business Saturday,” a sales-tax-free counterpoint to the Black Friday sales spree that follows Thanksgiving.

According to the proposal, shoppers on that Saturday would pay no state sales tax at Texas-based businesses that bring in less than $5 million annually. State Comptroller Glenn Hegar and Republican representatives Angie Chen Button and Dwayne Bohac said the idea is to encourage shoppers to spread the love.

Dwayne Bohac: Character education must be core of Texas schools

OPED:  Dallas Morning News

Why do some students thrive in the classroom while others do not? We have all read countless theories about academic success. Many of them are validly linked to instructor quality, student demographics, facilities, technology and class size, among others.
