Ind. Gov't. - Governor names Carolene Mays to IURC

Here is Governor Daniels' Feb. 18, 2010 press release. Ms. Mays' appointment will be effective March 8, which is a little over two weeks away. Per the release:

She is currently the publisher and president of the Indianapolis Recorder Newspaper and the Indiana Minority Business Magazine, and serves on the board of directors for the Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce, the Marion County Capitol Improvement Board and Peyton Manning's PeyBack Foundation among others.
That leaves a lot to wrap-up in a short period of time, as the Utility Regulatory Commission statute, IC 8-1-1-2 specifies at subsection (e):
(e) The members of the commission shall be appointed for a term of four (4) years, except when a member is appointed to fill a vacancy, in which case such appointment shall be for such unexpired term only. All members of said commission shall serve as such until their successors are duly appointed and qualified, and while so serving shall devote full time to the duties of the commission and shall not be actively engaged in any other occupation, profession, or business that constitutes a conflict of interest or otherwise interferes with carrying out their duties as commissioners.
