Members of the U.S. House of Representatives and Bush administration officials agreed to insert new protections separating church and state into legislation that would give religious groups an increased role in providing social services. In a move that will allow the stalled legislation to move forward in the House, the negotiators agreed that faith-based charities wanting to run social service programs with government money will have to let participants opt out of any religious aspects of their programs.
