State must protect all utility customers

There was cause for celebration after the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission extended the utility shut-off moratorium until Aug. 14. Sadly, tens of thousands of Hoosiers remain without shutoff protection, served by utilities not under the jurisdiction of the IURC. Therefore, the historic order left out tens of thousands who still face the looming threat of losing access to essential human services during the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression and a global health pandemic.
