ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Ecolab welcomes the passage of bipartisan legislation in the U.S. Senate
to establish permanent normal trade relations (PNTR) with Russia.
"We commend the House and now the Senate for their approval of the
legislation, and encourage swift action from the President," said Ecolab

Ecolab supports enactment of PNTR with Russia given the size of the

presents for U.S. companies.
