Members of the House Homeland Security Committee will meet over reports that some Transportation Security Administration agents may be compromising airport security.

Several lawmakers are accusing the agency of letting its employees get away with violations such as stealing from passengers and sleeping on the job. A report by the Government Accountability Office released yesterday found cases of misconduct within the TSA rose 26 percent between 2010 and 2012.
