Statement from State Sen. John Ruckelshaus

State Sen. John Ruckelshaus (R-Indianapolis) made the following statement today regarding the Indiana Utility Regulatory Committee's (IURC) decision to deny utility providers' request for cost recovery of lost revenue due to the COVID-19 pandemic:

STATEHOUSE (June 29, 2020) — “I applaud the IURC for prioritizing the welfare of our citizens during this difficult time. With many Hoosiers out of work due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is only right to ease their financial burden, not compound it.

"When this petition was originally presented, I voiced my concerns about what this would mean for families in our state who are already struggling. I am grateful the IURC has decided to continue to support those who need it most."
