Indiana local finance chief resigns after 15 months

Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels has accepted the resignation of his commissioner of local government finance and has reappointed
David Lott Hardy as chairman of the state Utility Regulatory Commission.

The governor's office says Tim Rushenberg is stepping down as commissioner of the Department of Local Government Finance
and returning to the private sector. He was appointed to the position in December 2008

During Rushenberg's tenure, the agency has returned more counties to on-time property-tax billing. Daniels says that
budget orders for 83 of 92 counties have been signed this year, six months ahead of the pace of last year.

The agency's general counsel, Brian Bailey, will be the interim commissioner until Daniels names a replacement.

Hardy was named to his first four-year term on the utility commission in 2006.
