Negotiations between Gov. Terry Branstad and the Iowa Council 61 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees moved to binding arbitration on Feb. 11 after negotiations failed.  State AFSCME President Danny Homan said both sides have presented arguments to a neutral arbitrator, and the two-year contract is expected March 7.
