Congress Is Urging The TSA To Keep Banning All Knives On Airplanes
The Hill reports, 133 House members have signed a letter to Administrator John Pistole. In it, they say they support a risk-based approach to security, but this isn't it. One lead author, Rep. Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.) has called the TSA's decision "borderline idiotic." Another, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) is sponsoring legislation to give a TSA advisory panel more authority. The agency did not consult the panel before it announced it would let passengers bring small knives and bats on board. Another bill would block the new policy altogether.
