(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The TSA has decided to delay a controversial new rule that would allow small knives on planes.
The relaxed rules were supposed to go into effect April 25th, but now the Transportation Security Administration announced it will delay the ruling in order to give an advisory committee more time to consider feedback.
The TSA has taken a lot of heat since announcing in March that passengers would be allowed to carry previously banned items like knives, bats and other sports equipment onto airliners.
