Restrictions Lifted for Commercial Travel

In what is sure to be a relief to commercial travelers, the Department of Homeland Security announced that it will be easing the ban on carrying liquids and gels in carry-on bags into airline flights.

EARTHtimes.org reports that, "The Transportation Security Administration said that as of now they would be allowing passengers to carry travel-size toiletries with a maximum capacity of 3 ounces (90 ml) and in a small clear-plastic bag. Passengers can also carry drinks bottles and other items that have been purchased from the airport."
