Boehner Choice Bill DOA

Chairman John Boehner’s plan to give federal funds to schoolchildren displaced by Katrina was slapped down 21-26 last night by the House Education and Workforce Committee.

Had the proposal been accepted, nearly 300,000 children would have had access to $6700 per year to attend a school of their choosing.
