IA Chief Justice Seeks More Funding

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Chief Justice Mark Cady of the Iowa Supreme Court says the state's judicial system has increased hours and improved efficiency, but there is still work to be done.
   Cady gave his annual "state of the judiciary" speech 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.
   The additional dollars would help pay for raises for judges and for more staffers in the court system. In prepared remarks, Cady says the courts must attract the "best and brightest."
