BOISE – Gov.-elect Brad Little has named his budget chief.

Little in a news release Wednesday named Alex Adams as the next administrator of the Idaho Division of Financial Management.

Adams is currently the executive director of the Idaho State Board of Pharmacy.

Little said Adams has a proven record of leadership at the pharmacy board and shares Little’s fiscal conservatism.

Little said Adams, at the Board of Pharmacy, oversaw a nearly 40 percent reduction in the board’s regulations that resulted in more jobs and an expansion of pharmacy services in underserved areas.

Adams said he’s honored to accept the appointment and will work with Little, lawmakers and agencies to make sure the state’s budget is in the best interests of Idahoans.
