WASHINGTGON- Caterpillar Chairman and CEO Doug Oberhelman attended the signing in the Oval Office of legislation establishing permanent normal trade relations with Russia. Oberhelman, in a release said he was honored to attend the historic event saying it's proof leaders in Washington can set aside party affiliations and cast the right votes.
