Santa Claus will get red carpet treatment in Nevada under an executive order signed Friday by Gov. Brian Sandoval.
In a takeoff of the poem, “The Night Before Christmas,” Sandoval calls on the Nevada National Guard to clear the airspace over the state for safe passage of the jolly old elf, and orders the Departments of Agriculture and Wildlife to ensure “no creatures are stirring,” on Christmas Eve, “not even a mouse.”
Santa will also get a pass on texting while flying; and from securing proper licenses or permits. Sandoval also ordered the Nevada Office of Energy to ensure adequate, energy-efficient lighting “for safe house-top landings.”
