Rep. Miller Statement on TSA's Policy Change Regarding Small Knives


Location: Harrison Township, MI

U.S. Representative Candice Miller (MI-10) today made the following comments regarding the Transportation Security Administration's (TSA) decision to issue a new federal rule allowing airline passengers to carry small knives on planes beginning next month. Miller said:

"The decision by the TSA to change security rules to allow knives onboard aircraft is just wrong. While pilots are responsible for securing the physical aircraft and with hardened cockpit doors knives may not allow a breach of the cockpit as happened on 9/11, they still pose a threat to the flight attendants and passengers. I stand with the flight attendants, 9/11 families and many others in urging the TSA to reconsider this decision which moves the security of our aircraft in the wrong direction."
