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



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

Last month 145 House members signed a letter asking TSA to keep the current policy that bars passengers from carrying aboard knives and other items, according to The Associated Press.
