Sen Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said she will consider forthcoming recommendations to change the National Security Agency's (NSA) controversial phone surveillance program.

"If there are alternatives that preserve the operational effectiveness of the call records program and can address privacy concerns, I am certainly open to changes," Sen Feinstein, chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee and a vocal defender of the NSA, said in a statement.

The intelligence community and the Department of Justice are scheduled to present to President Barack Obama recommendations for reforming the NSA program that collects information about American phone calls, first exposed by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden in the summer of 2013.
