What’s in the news?

- House lawmakers today are slated to take up tougher regulations for the state's compounding pharmacies. The state proposal follows a federal move also giving federal drug regulators clearer oversight of the pharmacies in the wake of last year's deadly meningitis outbreak.

- Federal historic sites and parks across Massachusetts and the country will remain closed again today as the federal shutdown continues a second day. The shutdown also could cause problems for federal programs, such as heating assistance for low-income residents.

- State officials say the updated version of the Health Connector website did brisk business yesterday as a key section of the federal health care overhaul took effect. More than 400 people began the insurance process on the site.

- The wife of a motorcyclist from the Boston area has identified him as the biker run over by an SUV during a New York City highway altercation Sunday. She says Edwin Mieses (MEE'-sehs) suffered spinal and leg injuries and is paralyzed. Police say the driver was scared for his life and took off as the bikers clustered around his SUV -- later attacking him.
