The Office of the Lt. Governor of Indiana’s social media accounts, along with the accounts of the five agencies that report to the Lt.

Governor or the agencies within the Family of Business.
- We do not allow profanity, obscenity, vulgarity, nudity, defamation of character, advertising, or political campaigning on the social media pages of the Office of the Lt. Governor of Indiana or the agencies within the Family of Business. Such content will be removed.

- If you have a question, please contact the Office of the Lt. Governor of Indiana. Visit http://www.in.gov/lg/2333.htm to submit questions.
- When interacting with other users, please be civil and follow the usage guidelines established by the social networking service.
- The focus of the social networking opportunities is to share information about the Lt. Governor of Indiana’s programs and activities, along with those of the Family of Business Agencies. Larger discussions of political views and philosophies may be addressed elsewhere.
- All links posted as comments on the Office of the Lt. Governor’s posts will be deleted.
