Time in the legislature[edit]

Bohac has earned the endorsement of many conservative and community organizations from across Texas for his legislative record.[1][2][3] Many of his accomplishments have been oriented around law-enforcement and small business incentives. He was named “Best of the House”[4] by the Combined Law Enforcement Association of Texas (CLEAT) and the “Taxpayers Best Friend” by the Texas House and was instrumental in the dedication of the Ronald Reagan Memorial Highway.[5]

At the close of the 2012 season Bohac introduced his "Merry Christmas Bill" in response to his son's school removing the word Christmas from all of its holiday activities.[6] The "Merry Christmas Bill" gained national media attention in the run-up to the 2012 Christmas season.[7][8][9]
