The head of the Transportation Security Administration testified before a Senate committee Wednesday on the latest controversy over full body scans and enhanced pat-downs.

Critics are worried about radiation exposure in the full body scans, and call them and the pat-downs invasive and intrusive.

An Ohio woman claims she was sexually assaulted during a pat-down at Daytona International Airport on Friday.

TSA administrator, John Pistole, told a Senate committee there are no plans to change security procedures. The agency insists the screenings are not only safe, but necessary.
