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.

Representative 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 5-7. 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 $949 million. This year, shoppers will save an estimated $92 million alone.

Harris County Disaster Recovery

Following Governor Greg Abbott's disaster proclamation after the devastating storms and flooding this month, the federal government has granted his request for a federal disaster declaration for four Texas counties, including Harris.

Affected citizens in these counties may be eligible for Individual Assistance grants of up to $33,000 from the federal government, and low-interest disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration.

Federal Disaster Declaration Granted For Texas Counties

Governor Greg Abbott: “I would like to thank the President and FEMA for quickly granting Texas’ request for Individual Assistance following last week’s severe weather. The State of Texas will continue to work with our local and federal partners to aid Texans recovering and rebuilding from flood damages and ensure all those affected receive the assistance they need.”

If granted, and as further damage assessments are conducted in coordination with local officials, additional counties may be added as they meet federal requirements for assistance.

Patrick: School Choice A Top Priority in 2017

Rep. Dwayne Bohac, a Houston Republican who attended the Thursday panel, said he thinks the House would’ve passed the Senate’s tax credit scholarship bill “overwhelmingly” last year — if it had made it to the floor for a vote. Instead, it died in the House Ways and Means Committee.

He emphasized that the concept was “not a voucher” and said it would have disproportionally helped poor and minority students.
