The steering committee, including Patricia Gallaugher, Arne Mooers, Jonathan Moore, Craig Orr, John Reynolds, and Rick Routledge, released a Statement from the Scientists’ Think Tank on February 27, 2013. A graphic showing the Timeline for science-­related recommendations from the Cohen Commission was also released.
