OK, I looked at the page header multiple times

…and this is not The Onion.

House of Representatives Bill Would Recognize Magic as ‘National Treasure’
In addition to recognition, the resolution also calls for “efforts to make certain that magic is preserved, understood, and promulgated.”

Representative Pete Sessions (R-TX) introduced HR 642. Rep. Steve Stivers (R-OH), Rep. Pat Meehan (R-PA), Rep. Dan Donovan (R-NY), Rep. Charlie Dent (R-PA), Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO), and Rep. Mike Simpson (R-ID) are co-sponsors. It has been referred to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

Clearly, this calls for a new federal Department of Magick. Heck, we can repurpose the EPA, since there’s already a lot of magical thinking over there.

They need to get right on it so I can apply for my mandrake farm subsidy. And then I can get land banking payments not to grow it.

Will the new Hogwarts National  Academy of Magic fall under DOM or the Department of Education?
