Guam - It was late last month when the Transportation Security Administration delayed the implementation of allowing small knives and other items onto airplanes. Today, lawmakers presented a resolution in support of the coalition of flight attendants union and other organizations in opposition of TSA's proposed policy change.
United Airlines flight attendant Ron Jackson accepted the resolution on behalf of Guam-based flight attendants, pilots and the 90,000 members of the coalition. "This resolution is very important to us as it sends a strong message to Washington D.C., the TSA administrator and the secretary of homeland security that the leaders of Guam and the people of Guam strongly oppose this decision 0834 so this resolution absolutely helps out fight," he said.
Jackson adds members of the coalition continue to lobby Congress to act on the No-Knives On Planes Act of 2013. The knives on planes policy was originally set to be implemented on April 25 but was delayed for six months. The resolution meanwhile was also transmitted to the U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security.
