MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Senate has endorsed legislation setting up a new system in the state for restricting toxic chemicals.

The bill calls for setting up by 2016 a working group to advise the Department of Health on a list of chemicals of high concern by 2017. Manufacturers would have to report to the state if they are using such chemicals in a consumer product sold in Vermont.

The Health Department will adopt rules that could lead to restrictions on the use of the chemical or labeling requirements.
