    Since saying “Abracadabra” just won’t cut it, a Texas lawmaker is angling to get Congress to officially recognize magic as a “national treasure.”
    Rep. Pete Sessions (R-Texas) is trying to pass a bill that would elevate this “rare and valuable form,” according to Politico.
    “Magic enables people to experience the impossible,” he wrote in the resolution introduced Monday.
    Sessions, who has tried to push similar bills in the past, argued that sorcery has special powers that unlock children’s imaginations.
    “Whereas magic is an art form with the unique power and potential to impact the lives of all people,” the resolution said. “Whereas magic enables people to experience the impossible; Whereas magic is used to inspire and bring wonder and happiness to others.”
    Six of Sessions’ Republican colleagues signed onto the bill, which was referred to the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
    The Society of American Magicians has been attempting to get Congress to recognize the greatness of magic since the 1960s.
