LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Republican U.S. Senate candidate Terri Lynn Land says the federal health insurance law is hurting Michigan families by driving up costs.

The ex-Michigan secretary of state offered guidelines for her alternative plan in a rare telephone news conference Monday. She says she opposes forcing people to have insurance but supports protections for people with pre-existing conditions.

Land hasn't said whether she supports Medicaid expansion, which will make hundreds of thousands of low-income adults eligible for health insurance starting April 1.

The ex-Kent County clerk says she isn't in a position to say whether she'd have allowed same-sex marriage licenses to be issued this weekend.

Land is expected to face Democrat Gary Peters in November to fill the seat now held by retiring Democratic Sen. Carl Levin.
