Under the threat of a presidential veto, the House and Senate will soon appoint negotiators to resolve conflicting bills that would expand education savings accounts.

The Senate passed legislation on a 56-43 vote last week that would raise to $2,000 the amount parents may deposit annually in the accounts and get a tax break. These after-tax contributions would earn tax-free interest and could be used for primary and secondary education expenses at public and private schools.
