LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Federal officials have temporarily delayed a policy change that would have let people carry small knives, novelty bats and other sports equipment on planes.

In March, the Transportation Security Administration announced its decision to allow knives with non-locking blades less than 2.36 inches long and a half-inch wide, as well as billiard cues, ski poles, lacrosse sticks and golf clubs, onto commercial aircrafts.

The policy, which was scheduled to go into effect Thursday, was immediately met with backlash from the public and flight attendants across the country.

The TSA said the delay will give them time to receive further input from its Aviation Security Advisory Committee.
