Santa Claus-Mineta

Santa Claus and Eight Tiny Reindeer

The federal government is trying to make Santa Claus' job a little easier and safer when he makes the rounds this Christmas Eve.

Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta says an open skies agreement with the North Pole gives Santa the go-ahead to deliver Christmas presents without having to worry about government paperwork.

Santa's reindeer will be allowed to legally land on the roofs of homes throughout America.

Mineta says the agreement also gives Santa more time to check his list without having to worry about Uncle Sam.
