(Reuters) - A U.S. government watchdog is satisfied with new steps that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is taking to improve screening at airports after major lapses last year, according to testimony on Tuesday before a U.S. Senate committee.

"As a result of our audit reports... TSA is now, for the first time in memory, critically assessing its deficiencies in an honest and objective light," the inspector general of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security said.
