Caterpillar Inc. may soon boast a new $40 million visitor center at its Peoria, Ill., headquarters. The company says it will build the facility if the state of Illinois goes ahead with a proposed $75 million Riverfront Museum in Peoria. Caterpillar has pledged $11 million for the museum project, and the state House Appropriations Committee on Thursday approved $12 million in state funding.
