During testimony given by TSA official John Pistole to a Committee of the U.S. Senate, the TSA intends to make repeated attempts to screen young children instead of resorting to intrusive pat-down searches. See this article from ABC News for more details.

The new policy will allow parents to request a re-screening and other alternatives before a pat-down is initiated.
