magic-wand bill
 n.— «This is the kind of bill that is often called a magic-wand bill—something that’s one thing, is something else just because we say it is.…Any kind of laws that disregard the reality of the situation is worrisome. It’s basically just declaring something is whole when it’s not.» —“Boise vs. Ada, next Round” by Deanna Darr Boise Weekly (Idaho) Feb. 27, 2008. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
