ARKANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - The Department of Homeland Security is planning to conduct chemical and biological tests near the border between Kansas and Oklahoma. 

Department officials plan to execute a "low level outdoor release" of inert chemical and biological simulant materials at the old Chilocco Indian School in January and then again in June. 

U.S. Rep. Ron Estes of Kansas said that federal agencies "need to be 100 percent certain the test is safe for the residents living in south-central Kansas."
