Washington (KTNV) -- Wednesday is day two of the government shutdown. Congress and the White House are no closer to resolving the crisis, but President Obama and key congressional leaders are scheduled to meet in the afternoon.
The meeting could mean negotiation time for lawmakers and a time to resolve the shutdown.
House republicans are demanding anti-ObamaCare provisions attached to any spending plan needed to end the shutdown.
However, the White House said the president will not make concessions on a clean spending plan or debt ceiling increase.
The White House said the meeting going on at Capitol Hill will include a briefing on the disaster caused by the shutdown.
House Speakers John Boehner, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi were all expected to attend.
