With Congress stepping up its investigation into the troubled Boeing 737 Max airliner and how it passed regulatory safety checks, the head of the Federal Aviation Administration is testified before a House aviation panel Wednesday.

Questions about the relationship between regulators and Boeing arose after two deadly crashes of the 737 Max aircraft.

House Aviation subcommittee Chairman Rick Larsen says the FAA has a credibility problem.
