Madison Mayor Sandy Kirkindall and Madison County Commissioner Dale Strong wrote to Riley asking for changes to Alabama's decades-old rules for approving new hospitals, nursing homes and other medical facilities. State lawmakers from the Huntsville area--both Democrats and Republicans--are also pressing for reforms.
