INDIANAPOLIS — Gov. Mike Pence has appointed the Indiana State Department of Health's chief of staff to the commission that oversees Indiana's utilities.

Pence cited James Huston's unmatched "lifetime of public service" in naming him Wednesday as a member of the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission.

Huston fills a vacancy on the IURC created in May when James Atterholt, who had been the panel's chairman, stepped down to become Pence's chief of staff. Pence later appointed Carol Stephan the IURC's new chair.

Huston will serve the remainder of Atterholt's term, which expires on March 31, 2017.

Huston has held a variety of government positions at both the federal and state levels during a career spanning more than 30 years.
