Rep. Mike Conaway wants the federal government to look into declaring former president George W. Bush's childhood home a national landmark, according to the Washington Examiner.

Conaway, a Texas Republican, sponsored a bill about making the home in Midland, Texas, part of National Park system. Bush lived at the 1412 West Ohio Ave. as a child.

The bill would commission a "special resource study" which would look at the suitability and cost of the site for national park status, and also other alternatives for the location, "for preservation, protection, and interpretation of the site."

The study would be due three years after funding for it is arranged.

Bush, the 43rd president of the U.S., has authored a book of his artwork alongside stories about the military and its veterans.

The site is already a museum that serves to "express and interpret the history of one of America's great families by telling the story of the Bush family and the childhood of George W. Bush in Midland, Texas, and celebrating the lives of two presidents, two governors, and two first ladies."
