A dispute over who should be in charge of policing at Los Angeles International Airport was settled -- at least for now -- with an agreement reached Tuesday between the LAPD and the airports agency police over sharing responsibilities.

The settlement resulted in the airport police union agreeing to a temporary delay in proposed state legislation that would boost the power of the airport officers, and which had been opposed by LAPD Chief William J. Bratton. The chief said it would have created confusion about who is in charge.
