The article presents information related to the discussion by lawmakers on a moratorium on new hospital construction in Springfield, Illinois. This move could stall billions of dollars in planned projects while legislators mull new ways to decide who gets to build and where. People close to the discussions say aides to House Speaker Michael Madigan have floated the idea of a moratorium to allow time for a major overhaul of the Health Facilities Planning Board of the state and its rules.
