PEORIA, Ill. – State Senator Dave Koehler released a statement in response to Caterpillar’s release yesterday concerning their new corporate headquarters.

“Caterpillar has long been one of the bedrocks of the Peoria region, and I hope that it will ultimately make a decision that will benefit both the company and our community,” said Koehler.

Koehler acknowledges the financial issues facing legislators in Springfield but says he is willing to work with Caterpillar and the community to tackle them.

“I continue to support a plan that will get Illinois back on the path to good economic health. A stable state budget is good for Illinois residents and good for our business climate,” Koehler said.
