DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - 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.
