Lawmakers say momentum is growing to curb the National Security Agency’s controversial metadata program after meeting with President Obama at the White House Thursday.

Obama declined to endorse any specific reforms during the private session with 16 Senate and House lawmakers but acknowledged the agency’s surveillance programs would have to undergo reform.

During a 1 1/2 hourlong meeting, Democratic senators zeroed in the on the controversial program that has allowed the intelligence agency to collect data on millions of domestic phone calls.
“Close to half the members of Congress think that the 215 program really ought to be reduced and limited. That for me shows real momentum,” said Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.), an outspoken critic of the NSA, who attended the meeting. “We wouldn’t have had that size of group, we wouldn’t have had those sentiments expressed half a year ago.”

Lawmakers said they expect the president to announce changes as soon as next week.
