WASHINGTON D.C. (NEWS 10) – On Monday, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson talked about security changes underway involving the Transportation Security Administration.

The agency has come under fire this year after Inspector General reports were released showing that TSA agents failed to find fake bombs and weapons during undercover tests at some of the nation’s busiest airports.

The administrator of the agency was replaced in the wake of the findings and replaced by Peter Neffenger.

Neffenger promised to make the necessary changes to improve the agency.
