Caterpillar CEO Says Illinois Off List for Expansion Plans

March 19, 2012

Doug Oberhelman tells the Chicago Tribune that Illinois' budget problems and workers' compensation expenses will keep the state off any list for future expansion.

In an interview with the newspaper, Oberhelman said Illinois didn't make the first cut of 20 states that the company considered for the recently announced compact equipment plant in Georgia, nor has it been considered for "several years."
