In Michigan, McCain offers requirements for bailout support

FREELAND, Mich. (AP) - Republican presidential candidate John McCain is expressing concerns about the Bush administration's proposed $700 billion government bailout of U.S. financial markets.

The Arizona senator spoke in Freeland, Mi., where he was visiting a Dow Corning solar facility.

McCain says the legislation must prevent Wall Street executives from winning large taxpayer-funded bonuses and that no earmarks can be included. McCain is stopping short of saying he'll vote "no" if his priorities aren't reflected.

He says he's confident the final plan will include them. At his first news conference in weeks, McCain said he looks forward to personally being involved with his colleagues.
