Emergency, Pending & Final Rules

Before the Commission may add or make changes to its existing rules, it must follow the formal rulemaking process. By doing so, it ensures the opportunity for public comment and allows the issues at hand to be fully vetted. To find out how the rulemaking process works, please click here.

Rulemakings are listed in order by the Commission's rulemaking number (RM #), with those most recently initiated being displayed first. Click the Details link to open a page that provides additional information about that specific rulemaking, including how to participate and whom to contact.

Emergency Rules

Emergency rules are sometimes needed either to address an emergency under Ind. Code § 8-1-2-113 (emergency alteration, amendment, or suspension of rates or services) or as required by a new statute. The emergency rule process is greatly truncated, and the rule normally expires within 90 to 180 days. Emergency rules generally function as place holders until a formal rulemaking process can occur.
