Time in the legislature

Many of his accomplishments have been oriented around law-enforcement and small business incentives.

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. The "Merry Christmas Bill" gained national media attention in the run-up to the 2012 Christmas season.
