Iowa Chief Justice Cady will address Legislature
Chief Justice Mark Cady of the Iowa Supreme Court is set to address lawmakers in the annual "state of the judiciary" speech.
Cady will speak Wednesday morning before a joint session of the Legislature. Cady, who has served on the court since 1998, is seeking a budget increase for the fiscal year that begins July 1.
According to the governor's proposed budget, the judiciary is looking for an allocation of about $179 million, an increase of nearly $11 million over the projected spending for the current year.
A press release from the judicial branch says the speech will focus on efforts to make the court system the "most advanced, and the most responsive" in the nation.
