The Hoosier State now has an insurance commissioner.[@@]
Jim Atterholt, the official serving as the acting commissioner, will be getting the job permanently, according to Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, a Republican.
Atterholt was named to the post Jan. 17, after the governor’s first choice, Evansville, Ind., insurance agent Harold Calloway, withdrew his name from consideration, citing the strain the job would put on his agency.
