WASHINGTON â¿¿ As the government's partial shutdown enters a second day, companies across the country are doing business as usual. Yet concern is rising that a prolonged shutdown will cause some work at private companies to dry up and consumers to lose confidence in the U.S. economy. By Scott Mayerowitz and Joyce M. Rosenberg. SENT: 880 words, photo.


â¿¿ BUDGET BATTLE â¿¿ President Barack Obama calls congressional leaders to the White House on Day 2 of the first partial government shutdown in 17 years. It's a slim sign of movement in the political paralysis idling hundreds of thousands of federal workers. SENT: 1,000 words, photos, video. UPCOMING: 1,100 words by 4 p.m., with urgent updates from 5:30 p.m. White House meeting.


NEW YORK â¿¿ Wall Street is sending Washington a message: End the shutdown and move on. Stocks fall as traders, European regulators and even Wall Street CEOs urge Congress to stop the two-day government shutdown that has closed national parks, put hundreds of thousands of federal employees on furlough and forced President Obama to cancel an overseas trip. After shrugging off the first day of the shutdown, Wall Street makes it clear that if a budget fight and a debt ceiling impasse drag on, the more it fears significant damage to the economy. By Steve Rothwell. SENT: 950 words, photos.
