Arkansas Gov.-elect Asa Hutchinson says the public can apply for jobs and appointments in his administration in a new website he's setting up as he prepares to take office next year.

The incoming Republican governor told reporters Thursday that he has set up a website, www.asaforarkansas.com , to provide updates about his transition.

Hutchinson said the site will also include links to apply for jobs or appointments under his administration. Hutchinson defeated Democrat and fellow ex-congressman Mike Ross last week in the race to succeed Gov. Mike Beebe. Beebe, a Democrat, is leaving office in January due to term limits.

Hutchinson said he's set up multiple teams that are will review different state agencies and their budgets, and said he will be meeting with agency heads.
