State Leaders Must Release COVID-19 Model

John Hinderaker, President of Center of the American Experiment, released the following statement in response to the extension of Gov. Tim Walz’s stay-at-home order:

“State leaders must release the model they are using to predict the impact of COVID-19. It’s unconscionable to expect Minnesotans to blindly follow government guidance when their lives and livelihoods have been completely upended.

“Today we are calling on Gov. Walz and Commissioner Malcolm to immediately release the original model that informed the decisions made two weeks ago, the revised model that has informed today’s decisions, and all of the underlying data and assumptions. This is the time for complete transparency; the stakes could not be higher.”

John Hinderaker has been President of Center of the American Experiment since 2016. He spent 41 years as a litigator with Faegre & Benson and its successor Faegre Baker Daniels, during which time he tried 100 jury cases and appeared in courts in 19 states. After founding the website Power Line, he became a frequent political commentator on NBC, CBS, Fox News, CNN, CNBC, and various national radio programs. John has lectured at Dartmouth College, Harvard Law School, Carleton College, St. Olaf College, Macalester College and the University of Minnesota.
