Lawmakers are expected to grill the head of TSA on Tuesday over increased security measures at U.S. airports that have sparked public fury.

John Pistole, the head of the Transportation Security Administration, is expected to be hit with questions about new pat-down techniques that air passengers have complained are invasive. He is scheduled to testify before the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee about air-cargo security measures put in place since an attempted terrorist attack from Yemen.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano defended the new search methods on Monday, telling reporters they are necessary to ensure the public’s safety. She said the agency is open to making adjustments as the techniques are put into common practice.

But Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) — referencing a picture circulating online of a nun being patted down by airport security officials — told The Hill that voters are going to continue to be upset at TSA’s use of pat-downs and whole-body imaging technology until a balance is struck between personal privacy and security.
