The Ohio Roundtable filed a Freedom of Information request with Dr. Amy Acton of the Ohio Department of Health to allow all Ohioans to “see the math” behind the construction of Dr. Acton’s latest model which is controlling public policy decisions in Ohio, The Star reported. The concern cited was to know what is driving the state’s decisions to close businesses on a huge scale and upend society.
