Officials at the Blue Grass Army Depot in Richmond, Wednesday, staged a simulated chemical accident. 

It’s part of the annual exercise which involves emergency response officials in ten Kentucky Counties.

Discussions are underway regarding proposed changes in the process of disposing chemical weapons at the Blue Grass Army Depot.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says a Russian diplomatic proposal that would secure and eventually destroy the Syrian chemical weapons stockpile is worth exploring.

McConnell drew parallels to the destruction of chemical weapons housed at the Blue Grass Army Depot near Lexington during his remarks on the Senate floor Tuesday.
