Charles Schumer has called on the agency to reverse itself.READ MORE: Woman Collapses, Dies While Climbing Stairs To 19th-Floor Apartment During Power Outage In Co-Op City
Schumer said the new guidelines, set to take effect on April 25, will put passengers and crew members in unnecessary danger.
“Everyone is befuddled,” Schumer told reporters including WCBS 880’s Jim Smith. “You don’t have to have a PhD in physics, you don’t have to be Albert Einstein to know that these items are dangerous.”
