As everything from food to healthcare becomes more expensive, costs of essential human services like heating your home and turning on your lights must remain affordable for Hoosiers.

The Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC) continues to do a grave disservice to the captive ratepayers of Duke Energy Indiana. After denying a motion by the coalition of consumer and environmental groups to stay the current proceeding regarding the scandal-ridden and problem-plagued Edwardsport IGCC powerplant until after testimony and evidence was filed in the settlement portion of the proceeding, the IURC gave the groups just 72 hours to file testimony in the case.
The now $3 billion Edwardsport Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) coal-fired power plant currently under construction by Duke Energy has been shrouded in controversy since Duke Energy first filed for approval before the IURC in 2006. The burgeoning ethics scandal has made the approval of this problem plagued power plant even more questionable.
These are the issues of immediate importance we are working on right now.
