JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri House members have endorsed a bill that attempts to resist proposed federal regulations of wood-burning stoves.
The legislation received initial approval Wednesday. It would prohibit the state Department of Natural Resources from implementing regulations on wood-burning heaters without specific approval from the Legislature.
It's prompted by a proposed rule change by the Environmental Protection Agency that would give manufacturers five years to meet tougher standards that would reduce emissions from wood stoves by an estimated 80 percent.
Some manufacturers contend it would drive up the costs and could put them out of business.
Supporters of the Missouri legislation hope to prevent state regulators from helping to implement the proposed EPA regulations. The bill needs another House vote to move to the Senate.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - County governments could legally assemble lists of sick and disabled residents under legislation endorsed by the Missouri Senate.
The bill given, initial approval Wednesday, would allow creation of voluntary registries of people with "health-related ailments." The purpose would be to identify people who may need help in disasters or emergencies.
Sponsoring Sen. Eric Schmitt, of suburban St. Louis, said the lists could help save lives.
The lists would remain closed records. But if a disaster or emergency affected someone on a list, an incident report could be made public. The legislation needs another Senate vote to move to the House.

The Chesterfield Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating two suspects from a robbery and kidnapping which occurred about 5 p.m. on Friday.
Police say two female suspects were confronted by security during a shoplifting incident at the H&M store at Chesterfield Mall.
Suspect Cierra Baker, along with an unknown female, attempted to leave the store with stolen merchandise and when confronted, Baker reached into her purse, grabbed a can of mace, and sprayed the security guard before fleeing.
The two subjects then separated, with Baker carjacking a woman from the parking lot. Baker threatened the woman and forced her to drive from Chesterfield Mall to Big Bend and I-64.
There, the suspect was picked up in a white car with tinted windows. The victim was not harmed.
Anyone who may know the whereabouts of Cierra Baker or who may have information about this incident or the second suspect, is asked to contact the Chesterfield Detective Bureau or St. Louis Crime Stoppers at 314-725-8477 (TIPS).
