Search to fill IURC vacancy begins
Indiana Utility Regulatory Commissioner Stefanie Krevda is stepping down from her post, Gov. Eric Holcomb’s office announced Friday. Krevda, who was first appointed to the IURC in 2018 by Holcomb, will remain until the end of April.
Holcomb’s office said Krevda notified the governor that she wished to spend more time with her young family in her decision to step down.
Krevda was reappointed to the position by Holcomb in 2022. As one of five commissioners, Krevda makes decisions regarding proposed utility rate hikes.
The Indiana Regulatory Commission Nominating Committee will meet to evaluate potential replacements after her departure. Its list of candidates will be forwarded to the governor, who will decide who will fill the vacated post.
This is the second commissioner position to be filled over the past six months.
In September, Holcomb appointed David Veleta to fill a vacancy created by the departure of David Ober. Ober resigned from the IURC to take a position with the Indiana Chamber of Commerce.
