SCHUMER STATEMENT ON DELAY IN TSA PLAN TO ALLOW SMALL KNIVES ON PLANES

U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer released the following statement Monday after Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Administrator John Pistole delayed the implementation of a new TSA policy that would have allowed flyers to bring certain pocket knives onto planes.

“By delaying this policy, the TSA is taking a solid, common sense step in the direction of safer skies. This delay acknowledges that permitting knives on planes is a bad idea; now the TSA should go the rest of the way and end this flawed policy all together. Anything less than a full reversal will be unsatisfactory for passengers and the hard working flight attendants, pilots, and air marshals who keep our planes safe every day.”
