Lewiston Airport pocket knives restriction lifted

LEWISTON, ID - Change is on the horizon for what is and is not allowed while flying.

The Transportation Security Administration is changing some of their restrictions on what they allow on a plane. Still no water-bottles, but next month items like pocket knives and hockey sticks will be allowed.

"I think pocket knives are okay, they don't hurt nothing," said airplane passenger Bennie Kellar.

The new rules will take effect on April 25th. Knives can be up to 6 centimeters in length, a half inch wide and must be able to retract. This will be the first time the TSA allows small knives on airplanes since the September 11th terrorist attacks.
