The head of Iowa's largest state worker union said Tuesday that he'll push for early retirement incentives to encourage thousands of workers to leave state government and help cut costs amid continuing budget problems... Danny Homan, president of Council 61 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, said in an interview with The Associated Press that up to 2,700 workers are eligible to retire and might do so if the state helps pay their health insurance premiums.
