The TSA has not commented on the change except to say ot brings the U.S. more in line with international regulations. People at the airport had varied opinions. Some were surprised they would soon be able to carry a knife on board a plane, but that liquids like lotions or hairspray were still prohibited. Others said they were happy to see any relaxation of the rules and didn't believe it would cause any safety issues.
