"The House is expected to approve a bill Wednesday afternoon that would revive and expand the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program, as President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) stake out opposing sides on the school choice plan. Under the program, which began in 2004, low-income District students are given federal money to help pay for private school tuition. ... it faces a steep climb in the Senate, where Democratic leaders are opposed and unlikely to bring it up as a standalone bill."
