A Lifelong Resident of House District 138 Who Works Hard and Gets Results for Our State and Local Community
Born and raised in District 138, Dwayne Bohac represents the west Houston communities of Spring Branch, Cy-Fair, Bear Creek and Katy in the Texas House of Representatives. During his time in the Texas Legislature, Dwayne Bohac has focused on improving local quality of life, keeping taxes low, securing the border, reducing crime and improving public education.
At the state level, Bohac has led efforts to cap annual property tax appraisals at 5% or less, co-authored the state’s Voter ID law, and worked with local teachers, parents and school board members in the ongoing fight to improve public education and provide fair teacher pay. He has also consistently fought to balance the state budget without raising taxes or fees.
He is the author of the “School Supplies Sales Tax Holiday” that benefits students, parents and teachers each year, and he received national recognition for authoring the “Merry Christmas Bill” which allows teachers and students to celebrate Christmas and Hanukkah in public schools without fear of litigation.
Representative Bohac is a ranking member of the House Committee on Public Education and the House Committee on Ways & Means. He was also appointed by Governor Greg Abbott to serve on the Education Commission of the States, an interstate compact on education policy that seeks to improve education nationwide by sharing resources and expertise with education policy leaders in each state.
At the local level, Dwayne has focused on protecting local neighborhoods and improving local quality of life. He has worked to improve local flood control measures by advocating for the use of retention ponds, given municipalities greater authority to enforce apartment standards and crack down on illegal game rooms and massage parlors, increased local police patrols, passed tougher laws against graffiti, and secured funds for local traffic mobility and esplanade beautification projects.
Bohac teamed up with State Senator John Whitmire (D-Houston) to pass legislation creating the Spring Branch Management District (SBMD) with a mission to serve the area through public safety, mobility, transportation, business development and urban design improvements. Today, the SBMD is revitalizing one of Houston’s oldest and most close-knit communities and providing a better quality of life for businesses and residents alike.
Dwayne Bohac has been an active community leader long before he was elected to the Texas House of Representatives. He was a founder of the Save Our Neighborhoods—Northwest Coalition and served as a member of both the White Oak Bayou Association and the Spring Branch Revitalization Association. Bohac believes that there is nothing more important than protecting our neighborhoods and our local quality of life.
A lifelong resident of Texas House District 138, Bohac was born in northwest Houston and lives in the Spring Branch area. He attended Scarborough High School and graduated cum laude from Texas A&M University with bachelor’s degrees in Political Science and Marketing. Dwayne and his son, Reagan, are active members of Second Baptist Church in Houston.
