INDIANAPOLIS - A nominating committee is taking applications to fill two openings on the state commission that oversees Indiana's utilities.
The positions on the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission were created by the announcement in September by Larry Landis that he would retire this month and the resignation of Kari Bennett in November. Landis was appointed to the commission nearly 11 years ago, while Bennett served three years.
Applications are being accepted through Jan. 21. The nominating committee will then hold a public meeting Jan. 31 to interview applicants. The committee will present Gov. Mike Pence a list of six candidates.
Bennett's term expires on March 31, while Landis' runs out on Dec. 31, 2015.
