Child nu­tri­tion pro­grams will ex­pire to­night as the House lead­ers dropped plans to move a reau­thor­iz­a­tion bill to the floor be­fore the re­cess.

House lead­er­ship “will push hard for a vote in the lame-duck,” a House Demo­crat­ic aide said late Wed­nes­day.

The reau­thor­iz­a­tion bill would add $4.5 bil­lion to the school meals budget over 10 years, but Demo­crat­ic dif­fer­ences over wheth­er to use a fu­ture re­duc­tion in food stamp be­ne­fits to pay for the in­crease pre­ven­ted ac­tion, the Demo­crat­ic aide said.

The Sen­ate has already ap­proved its ver­sion of the bill.
