TSA drops its proposal to allow small knives, bats and golf clubs on airplanes

The head of the Transportation Security Administration says he’s dropping a proposal that would have let airline passengers carry small knives, souvenir bats, golf clubs and other sports equipment onto planes.

The proposal had drawn fierce opposition from lawmakers, airlines and others who said it would place passengers and crews at risk.
