Ind. Gov't. - " Carol Stephan named new chairperson of Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission"

John Russell reports in the Indianapolis Star:

Gov. Mike Pence has named Carol Stephan the new chairperson of the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission, the powerful state agency that approves utility fees for millions of households, businesses and schools.

Stephan succeeds Jim Atterholt, who resigned last month after serving nearly four years as chairman, to become Pence’s chief of staff. * * *

Stephan becomes the first female chair of the commission. The move is a big, sudden promotion for Stephan, who has been a voting member of the five-person commission for only two months. She previously was assistant general counsel of the IURC for several years.

Before joining the IURC, Stephan held administrative positions at the Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselor, the Indiana Department of Workforce Development and the Attorney General’s office.
