ST. PAUL - Minnesota politicians want guarantees that any federal money spent to bail out a troubled automobile industry be used wisely.


For U.S. Sen. Norm Colman, R-Minn., the key is that whatever money is given to the industry, automakers must be accountable.

"I have a strong concern that any support we give the auto industry must have strong, fiscal controls and accountability," Coleman said.

"The taxpayers of my state will insist on it, and I will demand it."
