The purpose of the meeting is to "discuss legislative priorities before the August recess," according to White House guidance for the meeting.

Indeed, a number of items remain on the Senate's plate before lawmakers break for their traditional August recess.

Senate Majority Leader Harry ReidHarry Mason ReidWATCH: There is no Trump-Russia collusion and the media should stop pushing this The demise of debate in Congress ‘North by Northwest,’ the Carter Page remake MORE (D-Nev.) has said he hopes to finish work on Wall Street reform "this week," and move to other top priorities. Those include a long-stalled extension of unemployment benefits and a campaign finance reform bill that Democrats had hoped to bring to the floor before the Fourth of July holiday.

More broadly, Obama may press the senators on other top priorities, like an energy and climate bill, and immigration reform legislation, which the president has said he would like to see set into motion this year. Obama has also called on senators to ratify the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New START) with Russia before November.
