Rulemakings - Pending & Effective

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 more about the rulemaking process, click here.

Below are pending rulemakings currently in process, rulemakings that have become final within 90 days, and any emergency rules. Click the “Details” link next to the rulemakings to access that rulemaking’s status, documents and public comments, next steps, and contact information for questions or to be added to the listserv regarding the rulemaking.

Effective Rules

All effective rules can be found in Indiana Administrative Code. The rules that have become effective within 90 days can be found below.

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.
