TSA Faces More Scrutiny Over Knife Decision
WASHINGTON, D.C.--There are new calls for the Transportation Security Administration to reverse its decision allowing small knives on planes.
The TSA announced last week that it's scrapping the post 9-11 ban on knives with blades measuring nearly three inches or less.
The TSA says the decision was based on a recommendation from an internal group that decided small knives present no real danger.
Unions representing pilots, federal air marshals and flight attendants have all spoken out against the change.
