In December 2011, Austria announced his intention to not run for re-election for the 113th Congress in the 2012 elections.

Austria was born in Cincinnati, the son of Jean C. (née Brockman),a nurse, and the late Dr. Clement G. Austria, a medical doctor. He grew up in Xenia, the eldest of nine children. He graduated from Carroll High School in 1977. His mother was of German descent, and his father was from Tiaong, Quezon, Philippines, and had moved to Ohio to attend medical school. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Marquette University in 1982 and began a career as a financial advisor. The Austria family was named the 1984 "Ohio Family of the Year" and was later presented with one of nine "The Great American Family" awards by First Lady Nancy Reagan. His father sat on the Greene County Central Committee of the Republican Party.
Austria was a member of the Ohio House of Representatives from 1998 until 2000. Austria won re-election in 2004 against Democratic challenger Charlie Hart in the general election with 65% of the vote.
Austria was elected to the Ohio State Senate in 2001, representing the 10th District. He served two terms as the Senate House Majority Whip.In 1998, he sponsored the "Internet Child Protection Act", which was later enacted into law.
He served as Chairman of the Senate Highways and Transportationand Senate Judiciary Committees.
Austria won the Republican nomination for the 7th District after nine-term incumbent Dave Hobson retired. He defeated Democratic challenger Sharen Neuhardt in the general election, 59% to 41%.When Austria was elected, he made history by becoming the first son of a Filipino immigrant to be elected to the House of Representatives.
Austria was elected to a second term by defeating Libertarian John D. Anderson, Democrat Bill Conner and Constitution Party David Easton.
Following the 2010 United States Census, Ohio lost two seats in the House of Representatives, due to relatively slow population growth.In subsequent redistricting, Austria's district, which stretched from Springfield to the southern suburbs of Columbus, was dismantled, with its territory split between three neighboring districts. Austria's home in Beavercreek was drawn into the 10th District (previously the 3rd District) of fellow Republican Mike Turner, who has served since 2003. The largest city in the district, Springfield, was drawn into the 7th District of House Speaker John Boehner. In December 2011, Austria announced his intention to retire at the 2012 elections, rather than run in a primary against Turner or move to run in another district. While one proposal would have seen the 10th retain roughly half of the territory from Turner and Austria's old districts, the final map drew Austria into a district that would have been over 75 percent new to him. State House Majority Leader Matt Huffman said that the new map "essentially eliminated" any realistic chance of Austria being able to stay in Congress.
Austria is the third person of Filipino heritage (after Bobby Scott of Virginia and John Ensign of Nevada) to serve in the House as a voting member. He is the first first-generation Filipino to be elected to the United States Congress.
Austria is a staunch fiscal and social conservative, which is unusual in a district that has historically elected moderate Republicans. His campaign stressed Second Amendment rights, tax relief, opposition to abortion, and eliminating waste in government. He was a member of the Republican Study Committee and the Republican Main Street Partnership.
Austria co-wrote a letter with Rep. Steve Rothman in the wake of the Itamar attack claiming that any peace attempt in the Middle East had to recognize that "Palestinian incitement continues and there is almost no effort by them to promote coexistence and peace."
