Adam Brown (born 1985) is a Republican member of the Illinois House of Representatives, representing the 101st district.

Brown is a graduate of the University of Illinois. He worked for the United States Department of Agriculture and served on the Decatur, Illinois city council before his election to the Illinois House in 2010.

In 2011, Brown joined with State Representative Bill Mitchell of the 87th district in proposing statehood for Cook County. Mitchell said that Chicago is "dictating its views" to the rest of the state and Brown added that Chicago "overshadows" the rest of Illinois.[1]

In September 2015, Brown announced he was retiring from the Illinois House of Representatives.[2]
