In a rare rebuke, Congress defied President Bush on Tuesday, sending him legislation giving scientists broader access to embryonic stem cell lines for federally funded research into an array of illnesses and conditions, from spinal cord injuries to Alzheimer's, diabetes and Parkinson's disease.

An effort to override the veto Wednesday night is likely to fall short, said House Majority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio).
