DECEMBER 15, 2000

In an editorial today, The Seattle Times says President Bill Clinton should make the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge a national monument.

The paper says Clinton should issue the designation before he leaves office in order to protect it from commercial exploration. Although the paper doesn't directly state it, President-elect George W. Bush supports opening up the refuge to oil development.

In an October 22 editorial, The Seattle Times endorsed Bush for President.
